The Wines

Masi Tupungato wines have a unique place in the Argentinean wine world: they are the fruit of an original encounter between the emblematic grapes of Argentina, Malbec and Torrontès, and native grapes from the Venetian regions, Corvina and Pinot Grigio.

Wines from the Masi Tupungato estate are made with the appassimento technique, which means leaving the grapes to dry out for the winter months, thus concentrating aromas and perfumes. This is a typical Venetian winemaking method, in Masi is internationally recognised to have a great expertise. It produces versatile and innovative wines, which unite Argentinean exuberance with the attractiveness and elegance of the Veneto.

    Bianco di Argentina

  • Back

    Lively red with great richness and intensity. An emblematic demonstration of the originality of the appassimento method and its suitability for use outside the Valpolicella region. The elegance of the Corvina, with its cherry tastes and its velvety body, complements the tannic virility of the Malbec perfectly, creating an original taste and aroma profile. Master Sommelier Larry Stone has called Corbec “one of South America’s absolute top wines”.

  • Back

    Red with an unusual aromatic intensity; impressive for its fruity intensity and slight spiciness. The strength of the Malbec is softened by the lightly dried Corvina Veronese. The Descorchados 2014 guide has called Passo Doble “ElelegidoTupungato”, the best wine in Tupungato.

  • Back

    An explosion of fresh tastes and aromas, intense and elegant. This is an innovative wine made in an unconventional style exclusively from organic grapes produced on the Masi Tupungato La Arboleda estate at Mendoza in Argentina. Draws its aromatic exuberance from the local Torrontés grape variety, while lightly dried Pinot Grigio confers the finesse and style of a top quality white wine from the Venetian regions. The South American wine guide, Descorchados 2014, awards it 90 points.
