Milamore: the "Amarone" of Mendoza


Every year we dedicate a part of our harvest to Milamore, an emblematic wine for Renacer that combines winemaking techniques from the old continent with local varieties. It is also a reflection of our spirit of innovation and one of the winery's specialities.


How is it made? It is made using the "Amarone della Valpolicella" method, with sultanas? Not really. Read on to learn more about Milamore.


Milamore is a wine made using the Apassimento method, an ancient technique in which the bunches of grapes are exposed to dry winds at room temperature until they lose about a third of their weight. The aim of leaving them like this is to achieve a higher concentration of tannins and structure and to have good aromas, flavours and colours.


So Milamore by its way of elaboration takes us to enjoy the style of the classic Italian wines. But the use of iconic varieties from Argentina gives it the local touch, it is a high-end blend that is composed of 45% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Bonarda and 5% Cabernet Franc. These varieties, once they have lost their weight in the apassimento stage, are fermented in separate tanks. Once the wine is ready, a final blend is made with a Reserva wine that is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels to add complexity and style.


The nose expresses great complexity of flowers, honey, dried plum jam. After a few minutes notes of vanilla and sweet spices from the French oak appear. Creamy mouthfeel, firm and sweet tannins. Long and persistent finish with dried fruits as a final note.


It is ideal to enjoy as a dessert with chocolates, dried fruit tarts or desserts that combine fruits. It also works very well with a cheese board. And for those more daring, it is ideal to accompany risottos, pastas and pork or sweet and sour preparations.
