Area of production
Calchaqui Valley

The Calchaqui Valley is a remote location hidden in the Northwest of Argentina, capable of producing exceptional wines: highly concentrated, rich in color, aroma and flavor. Poor sandy soils, moderate winds, high sun exposure, low humidity and an altitude exceeding 1800 meters  make this terroir unique in this world.

Altimus is the iconic wine of Bodega El Esteco. A winemaker’s blend that changes from year to year. The wine is made from the estate's best parcels and from the harvest’s best grapes. Harvest is done either very early in the morning or at night when it is cooler and put into small 15 kg cases. A second selection is done in the crushing area and just the free run juice, which has greater concentration, is used. Each varietal is vinified separately. After alcoholic fermentation in small stainless steel vats and spontaneous malolactic fermentation, the juice is pumped over to obtain maximum color concentration before being placed in small French barrels to be aged for 18 months. After aging, the final blend is made and bottled unfiltered and un-stabilized to keep the unique character.

Tasting notes
Complex and refined aromas where toasted oak, black chocolate and red fruits marmalade outstand. Mouth filling with ripe and powerful tannins. Long & persistent with concentrated liquorish ending.
