Via Revolucionaria, La Criolla Grande Mendoza 2021
Criolla Grande (Pais)
Via Revolucionaria is located in Tupungato, Uco Valley Mendoza. Matias Michelini is the winemaker and agron- omist. Matias strives to make experimental wines that ex- press terroir. These wines are extremely low production and are drawn from multiple inspirations, regions, and styles. The Via Revolucionaria wines are all low production, single vineyard, unconventional wines, fermented with native yeast. Torrontes “Brutal” and Semillon “Hulk” are unfil- tered, vertical wines. The Bonarda “Pura” is fermented via carbonic maceration. The Ancellota 2013 is the only 100% varietal that we have encountered. Esperando los Barbaros is a single vineyard, dry-farmed Malbec from Maule, Chile fermented in an open amphora with native yeast and no added sulfur.
