Tinto Negro | Mendoza, Argentina
Tinto Negro is the result of the long-time friendship and professional collaboration of Alejandro Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach, colleagues at Bodega Catena Zapata for almost 15 years. As Wine Education Director for Catena, Jeff travelled the world preaching the gospel of the unique character of high altitude Malbec from Mendoza, explaining the character and expression of its many different terroirs.
As Vineyard Director at Catena, Alejandro had extensive, first hand experience growing Malbec in all of these terroirs, from the fruit driven, easy drinking style of Lujan de Cuyo to the concentrated, complex profile La Consulta. His intimate knowledge of the top vineyards in each region means Tinto Negro wines are made from only the best fruit each area has to offer.
Tinto Negro, translates to 'black wine' in Spanish and is the essence of the Malbec grape in Mendoza, where it is known for its dark, blackish colour; definitely a Tinto Negro.
