2013 vintage for us was a great year as all our vineyards enjoyed excellent
weather conditions and escaped from suffering any pest, hail storm, extremely
hot days, etc. These conditions meant that our Allamand Valle de Uco Cabernet
Sauvignon 2013 shows more fresh fruit, optimum maturity, and more complexity
than our previous years. In the mouth the wine is more serious than the
more body, structure, and power in the palate.

terroirs. Attention to detail is of extreme importance on every single step of
the vine growing process. Only biodynamic and sustainable viticulture is
performed at the vineyards. The vines go through green harvests (the removal
of immature grape bunches for the purpose of decreasing yields) and canopy
management to control sun exposure. All harvesting is done at night to take
advantage of the diurnal shifts and obtain better acid/sugar levels which is

Laurona has a deep purplish red color typical to its actual youth. Its aroma is
penetrating, complex and intense. Initially, it recalls blackcurrant, plums,
blackberries and roasted dried fruits. Gradually, as the wine opens up,

very persistent. The abundance and balance of tannins provide a luxurious
evolution over the next ten years.

two hours from the city of Milan you find one of Italy’s most dramatic wine
regions and one of the least explored; Valtellina. A place that runs along the
Swiss border and known for its beautiful landscapes and ski resorts. Thankfully
for us wine lovers it is also one of Italy’s least-known wine regions, one that
offers amazing value.
Wine in Valtellina has been made for more than 2000
years, even Leonardo da Vinci mentioned Valtellina wines in his Codex
Atlanticus, describing them as “heady and strong”. Over the centuries, farmers
discovered that because of the higher altitude, wines produced here were
bright, aromatically complex and had velvet smooth tannins. Unlike their
cousins from Piedmont, these are wines that are incredibly food friendly and
customers can enjoy them in their youth.

altitude above the town of Sondrio. The wines are 100% Nebbiolo (here known as

stainless-steel tanks and then spend 12 months in oak before bottling.
