Producer Note
The Piattelli Vineyards lie in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the century old
vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from the snow crested peaks; significant
in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards great pride is taken in crafting
wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and microclimates. Led
by head winemaker Valeria Antolin, the wines are produced through her passionate
pursuit of perfection. Their gravity fed winery in Cafayate honours their commitment to
sustainable practices. Piattelli Vineyards practises sustainable farming and their
Mendoza vineyards are USDA certified organic. The grapes are cultivated with arid
clean air, crystal clear water and nutrient rich soil and their award winning wines are
produced with wisdom, precision and care.


Vineyard
From high in the Andes surrounding Salta come Piattelli's Cafayate wines, grown at an
elevation of over 1,795 metres. The distinctively colourful north western Argentinian
mountains are formed of many geological layers. The splendour of this area, with its
pure water and extreme thermal amplitudes, is that it produces grapes bursting with
flavour, making this not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the premier
grape growing regions in the world. The wine is named after the high altitude
vineyards, ‘Alto’ meaning high and ‘Molino’, which translates as mill, taking its name
from an old grain mill which was constructed by the Jesuits in 1665 which sits at the
entrance of the Piattelli vineyard in Cafayate.


Winemaking
Vinified in the gravity fed winery, fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of
between 24 to 28°C with selected yeasts. Pump overs and rack and returns were
employed to obtain the desired levels of colour and flavour extraction. Malolactic
conversion occurred naturally and when this had finished, the wine was separated
from the solids and the free-run wine was stored in tanks until bottling. This wine was
made in an unoaked style, preserving the purity of fruit.
