Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Altocedro produce a range of red wines exclusively for the zone of La Consulta in the Uco Valley. Modern, ripe and well-oaked wines.

94 Pts Tim Atkin 

Located at altitudes over 1000m, Altocedro is at the foot of the Andes mountains in Mendoza, where the cool, fresh climate is producing some stand out Pinot! The wine has a fabulous aromatic concentration. Very harmoniously fruity and spicy with wood notes, framed by silky tannins and fresh acidity. Surprise yourself with this one!

Food Matching: Perfect with barbecued meats, try Lamb for a knock-out pairing. Will also drink well on its own.
