When Lucas Pfister has finished the vintage at his 40/40 winery in Mendoza, he heads to the northern hemisphere and works another at Italy's Alois Lageder. 40/40 Malbec is a few levels above your run-of-the-mill Argentinian Malbec. Produced in tiny quantities, it has remarkable freshness and elegance for what is often a big, bold style.
Fermented in stainless steel. Aged 12 months in French pak.
