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.

"As in 2017, the red 2018 Volare del Camino was produced from two plots in the Gualtallary Monastery, pure Malbec fermented destemmed with indigenous yeasts and matured for 16 months in barrel. This feels like the bigger brother of Inseparable, with a similar profile but a step up in austerity and subtleness, a little more closed and tight but still based on flowers, red fruit and some soil. It has a medium-bodied palate with very fine chalky tannins, a little sharper than those from Inseparable, more textured. This is getting closer to the spirit of Iubileus. This has a very soft extraction. 1,080 bottles were filled unfined and unfiltered in October 2019. In the next vintage, this wine will be put into a Burgundy bottle because they feel the soil from Volare with higher limestone content has a more Burgundian profile." 96 pts, Luis Gutiérrez
