Winemaker Note & Critical Acclaim:

Aromas of smoky oak and cherry. Mouthwatering, penetrating flavors of ripe red and black cherries, red berries. Quite rich and velvety on the palate, and finishes with just enough grip to make it a real winner with food. This is a seriously sexy Malbec blend. - Winemaker Note

The 2015 Amorío is now pure Malbec from two vineyards in Altamira. It fermented with native yeasts in concrete vessels and rolling barrels and matured in 225-liter barriques for 12 months followed by a further 14 months in 3,500-liter oak vats. From this vintage on, it will have the Paraje Altamira appellation. It is quite fresh from the vintage, with low alcohol and an austere palate. It surprised me with its serious personality and the verticality on the palate. 24,000 bottles were filled in August 2017. - 91 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Well-sculpted, with pure and concentrated dark cherry, currant and raspberry components that are backed by fresh acidity. Finishes with luscious dark chocolate and spice accents. Drink now through 2022. - 90 Points Wine Spectator

About The Producer:

Tikal was founded by Ernesto Catena, a 4th generation winemaker of Italian descent who, having spent a part of his life working as a designer and being a fervent student of Renaissance humanism, sees it as his mission to transform everything in his wine world into art , from growing the grapes to making wine to selling it. From the beginning, Ernesto searched for people with a strong creative drive to make sure that the right values stood at the core of the company. Teamwork is at the center of everything they do, from farming to winemaking and business decisions. They want their work to be fun, intense, and meaningful. They don’t fear mistakes, but rather they want to learn from them because for them that’s the only way to learn. They strive for perfection not only in their wines but also in the spirit with which they make them. To share a meal, to enjoy the fruits of their labor—these are the things that matter to them. Over the years, Ernesto and his team designed their biodynamic farm and vineyard as a sculpture to be gazed upon from the sky, similar to how the Mayas and the Incas designed their cities to be enjoyed by the Gods. Their vineyard is surrounded by natural flora and animals that help them achieve a state of harmony and equilibrium. They pay homage to the Sun in their Rose Garden, and to the Moon in their Vine Labyrinth with music and dancing. They see their winery and vineyard as a home for an artist to create and commune with Nature; to be one with the poetic nature of life. To truly understand the magic, they invite you to come and visit the home of Ernesto, poeta del vino.
