Description

Masi Tupungato Corbec

Masi Tupungato Corbec is a lively red with great richness and intensity. An emblematic demonstration of the originality of the appassimento method and its suitability for use outside the Valpolicella region. The elegance of the Corvina, with its cherry tastes and its velvety body, complements the tannic virility of the Malbec perfectly, creating an original taste and aroma profile. Master Sommelier Larry Stone has called Corbec “one of South America’s absolute top wines”.

The old Italian firm of Masi believe the oenological practices developed in the Veneto regarding viticulture, winemaking techniques and wine style can be exported and adapted wherever the natural and cultural location proves to be suitable.

Masi Tupungato is the name of Masi’s winemaking project in the Mendoza region of Argentina, located in the Tupungato valley at the foot of the eponymous volcano.

Here Masi has found the perfect climatic and cultural conditions to host the grapes and oenological techniques of the Venetian regions, particularly Appassimento, in which Masi has a recognised expertise.

Masi has also exported its philosophy of care and respect for the environment to Argentina, creating a completely eco-sustainable company.

The Masi Tupungato vineyards are found in a particularly suitable area for viticulture that is also especially in native flora and fauna.

In respect of this unique environment Masi has developed an eco-sustainability project for the area, practising organic agriculture and maintaining an oasis of biodiversity with the protection of 11 cerros (small hills) where numerous species of native animals have their home and where a botanical garden has been created to protect many local species of plants.

The 140 hectares of vineyards that make up this eco-sustainable oasis are planted with native grapes, Malbec and Torrontés, alongside Corvina and Pinot Grigio grapes imported from the Venetian regions.

Thanks to the favourable climate, the typical Appassimento method used with grapes from the Valpolicella region is also used here.

Peter Lehmann Mentor Cabernet 2014

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
