Masi Tupungato, Corbec Appasimento, Argentina


One of the most original winemaking projects of recent years, Masi Tupungato is a fusion of Venetian technique and Argentine terroir. The estate – Vigneti La Arboleda – consists of 140 hectares, of which eighty are currently planted with both Argentine varieties (Malbec and Torrontés) and Venetian grapes (Corvina and Pinot Grigio). Grapes for this wine are grown at an altitude of 950-1050 metres above sea level in the Tupungato Valley

Tasting Notes

Intense aromas of baked berries and plums on the nose. Well rounded and full of ripe cherry fruit flavours combined with distinct hints of cinnamon and cocoa on the long-lasting finish.

Tim Atkin – Masi Awards

Corbec 2012 and Passo Doble 2014, both red wines with great depths of flavour, are the result of blends of the Corvina grape from the Veneto and the virile, tannic, Malbec grape from Argentina.

Made with Masi’s speciality Appassimento technique, they are awarded respectively 91/100 and 87/100 points.
The fruity and aromatic Passo Blanco 2016 (Torrontés with lightly dried Pinot Grigio)gets 85/100 points.

Corbec is made using Masi’s specialist appassimento method. The two grape varieties were harvested and vinified separately. The selected bunches were laid on specially constructed wooden trays for twenty days. The grapes lost about twenty percent of their weight, but gained in concentration of sugars and aromas.
