Tinto Negro 1955 Vineyard 2011

The Tinto Negro 1955 Vineyard is located in the La Consulta district of the San Carlos county in the southern tip of the Uco valley, at an altitude of 3,000 feet. The vineyard is named for the year in which it was planted – 1955; this is seriously old vine Malbec!

The vines are naturally balanced with exceptionally low yields – often under 1.5 lb. per vine. The fruit has a wonderful balance between rich concentration and elegant refinement. Barrel fermented for seamless oak integration and aged for 18 months in new French oak prior to release.
