Manos Negras, Artesano Malbec

Punchy but elegant dark fruit, herbaceous and oh so long. The inclusion of a small percentage of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot intensifies the floral layer of the Malbec creating natural elegance that reminds us of an old world wine. 15 months in oak.

Sourced from the Altmira district of the San Carlos county, located in the southern Uco Valley at an elevation of approximately 1200 meters. At these extreme elevations, Malbec produces a rich bold wine, full of New World power and concentration.

Alejandro Sejanovich is arguably Argentina’s most knowledgeable viticulturist, working as vineyard director for Bodega Catena Zapata for 16 years, before joining Manos Negras in 2010. Awarded Top 10 Wine makes in South America by Decanter. Tim Atkin MW named Alejandro, Winemaker of the Year 2021.

Tim Atkin Argentina Report 2021 92 Points
Artesano hails from Paraje Altamira and is Malbec dominated with contributions from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Youthful, serious and dense, with the chalky minerality that comes with the terroir, sappy, youthful dark berry fruit, a hint of spicy oak and thrilling acidity. 92 Points, TA, May 2021.
