The new 2016 1350 is another high-altitude red blend that, in this case, is sourced from their Alluvia Estate in Gualtallary. It is composed of 50% Cabernet Franc, 45% Malbec and 5% of Casavecchia, an ancient and obscure red variety from Campania I had never heard of before and had to look it up. The blend is 13.9% alcohol and has a highish pH and moderate acidity. The vines are 11 years old and yield 6,000 kilograms of grapes per hectare (low for Argentina). It fermented in small tanks and concrete eggs with neutral yeasts and then matured in French barriques (20% new) for 16 months. The Cabernet Franc and Malbec are very noticeable and complement each other, and the Casavecchia provides tannins, with notes of grapefruit. It's expressive and open, very attractive. It's a serious blend, and it certainly feels like a more expensive wine. It has a nice backbone.
