A new addition to the Passionate Wines collection, Del Mono is the brainchild of winemaker Matias Michelini. Located in the Uco Valley of Tupungato, Mendoza, Matias strives to make experimental wines expressive of the region's cool climate and high altitude terroir. His wines are extremely low production, drawn from multiple inspirations, regions, and styles.

Del Mono, which means "from the Monkey" is crafted from village fruit sourced from sustainable, local growers in Tupungato. Aged in concrete eggs, Del Mono is vinified with minimal intervention and fermented with native yeast.

    Plum and berry aromas are intense, which is fair given that this is a young blend of Malbec and Syrah. A tight, juicy palate is fueled by bold acidity, while this tastes of red berry fruits, plum, currant and spice. Overall this is tasty and legit, with muscle. Drink though 2025.
