100% made with Malbec’s grapes originating from the vineyard which shares it’s name; since 2001 it has been the authentic expression of Las Compuertas’s terroir. With a 12-month aging process in French new oak barrels, it is a powerful wine characterized by an appealing perfume of blackberries and boysenberry flavors with a subtle freshness combine with firm and elegant tannins. Alizarine is a French word that defines intense red colors.
The winery is in the heart of Chacras de Coria, 15 km south of Mendoza city. It is a historical edifice built in 1899, fully restored in 2003, and with all the cutting-edge vine-growing technology. The technical systems are versatile, making an "haute couture" job possible in every wine range. The winery stands out from all the rest because of its small tanks, which enable the production of high-quality wines. The cellars, the most beautiful in South America, shelter Alta Vista wine barrels.
European inheritance, aging is an important factor in the production of great wines. Ours are aged with or without wood for a minimum of 12 months. After the fractional process, they are stowed into bottles for at least 3 months before they are dispatched. Some, like Alto, spend thirty six months in our cellar before being dispatched.
