PerSe is a personal project from Edgardo (Edy) del Popolo and David Bonomi. The pair met in 1995, while working together at a local winery and are now considered trailblazers on the Argentine wine scene. David is one of the most knowledgeable oenologists in the Uco Valley, with on-the-ground experience from Altamira in the south to Gualtallary in the north. Edy was practically born under a grapevine: his parents owned vineyards in north Mendoza, he went on to study oenology and agronomy, and when the winery he was working at was sold to the Santa Rita Estates.Gualtallary is a high-altitude zone in the department of Tupungato in the Uco Valley. David and Edy work with small plots of just 0.2-0.5 hectares, situated at around 1,300 meters. Due to the altitude average day and nighttime temperatures are 3-6 degrees lower than in the city of Mendoza, they choose their sites carefully as only certain plots can produce grapes that reach the quality they are aiming for.

What the critics say:

98/100Luis Gutierez, Wine Advocate

"Since 2017, this wine has been produced with Malbec from very young vines planted in 2013 on limestone-rich soils in their own vineyard in the Gualtallary Monastery, from a part with a little more topsoil but still very rich in limestone where they never used herbicides and is organically farmed but not certified. The 2018 Iubileus fermented in used rolling barrels with indigenous yeasts with a maceration of 30 days and matured in used barriques for 16 months. This year, the Iubileus is unusually tight, especially aromatically, and the wine needed time in the glass (or a decanter) to open up but remained with a serious and austere personality. The palate is tremendously chalky, almost powdery, with very fine tannins, fine-grained and finer than those from the Volare del Camino, with less fruit and more soil. This is rather impressive, serious and mineral, with long aging potential. It continues the path started in 2017, a wine with filigree and finesse, a very elegant and subtle vintage for Iubileus with no heat or excess ripeness but with grapes that developed fully, and the depth of aromas and flavors is breathtaking. 1,500 bottles were filled in October 2019."
