90pts - Wine Advocate & James Suckling

The Año Cero line ferments in cement and has a partial aging (30% of the wine) in French oak for 8-10 months. It has a cherry-driven nose, quite clean with nicely-integrated oak, which certainly stands out among the Malbec dominated region. The clean palate is medium-bodied and has nice acidity and supple flavors.

The winery and vineyards of Altocedro are located in the premier region of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Winemaker and owner Karim Mussi Saffie uses sustainable growing practices to produce limited amounts of terroirdriven wines. The vines range up to 100 years of age. All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand. Fermentation occurs either in small cement tanks or in barrels, and the extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago. Altocedro has become synonymous with outstanding La Consulta wine.
