Montesco is the label from Mathias Michelini for the wines he makes from grapes grown high up in vineyards in Tunuyan and Tupungato. These are some of the highest altitude vineyards he sources from, some very old, and subject to extremely cold weather.
The wines are made at his winery, Passionate Wines, in Tupungato, following his hands-off approach, from native yeasts and with minimal intervention and minimal sulfur levels. The resulting wines are admirable, unique, incredibly elegant, and always high-toned.
