PerSe Volare del Camino
- Montsant, Argentina
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.
"The 2017 Volare del Camino was produced from two plots in the Gualtallary Monastery, adding one more plot to the vines used in the 2016 vintage. It has a really captivating nose of flowers and herbs, really elegant, clean, precise and expressive. 2017 was a warmer year, despite which, the wine has kept very good acidity. It has incredible balance, really fine tannins and is very long. There is no oak whatsoever, and there is no sensation of heat; it's harmonious and balanced, focused, precise, symmetric and incredibly elegant. There is good ripeness, power, depth and concentration with finesse, a rare combination. It fermented in plastic bins with indigenous yeasts and matured in used barriques for 16 months. They have grown in quantity and expect to have a little bit more in 2018. 1,460 bottles were filled in October 2018." 96 pts, Luis Gutiérrez
