Masi Tupungato, Corbec Appasimento, Argentina

£34.95 incl VAT + Delivery

One of the most original winemaking projects of recent years, Masi Tupungato is a fusion of Venetian technique and Argentine terroir. The estate Vigneti La Arboleda consists of 140 hectares, of which eighty are currently planted with both Argentine varieties (Malbec and Torronts) and Venetian grapes (Corvina and Pinot Grigio). Grapes for this wine are grown at an altitude of 950-1050 metres above sea level in the Tupungato Valley.

Corbec is made using Masi’s specialist appassimento method. The two grape varieties were harvested and vinified separately. The selected bunches were laid on specially constructed wooden trays for twenty days. The grapes lost about twenty percent of their weight, but gained in concentration of sugars and aromas.

Made with Masi’s speciality Appassimento technique, they are awarded respectively 91/100 and 87/100 points.
The fruity and aromatic Passo Blanco 2016 (Torrontés with lightly dried Pinot Grigio)gets 85/100 points.
