Top scores for Passo Doble Masi Tupungato in the famous German “Taste Magazine” called Selection – this year the 2012 vintage gets a Gold Medal (4/5 Stars).
Passo Doble is one of the Masi Tupungato wines, which, together with Passo Blanco and Corbec, are all produced on organically run vineyards. This project sees Masi bringing the grapes and the production methods of the Venetian regions to Argentina, particularly the Appassimento technique, which gives a unique personality to these three wines. Masi’s philosophy of care and respect for the environment is perfectly realised in the company’s Tupungato Valley vineyards, which are a flourishing reserve for native flora and fauna. As a mark of respect for this unique land, Masi has integrated its operation with the surrounding environment on the estate, setting aside an eco-sustainable reality in which an important oasis of biodiversity can flourish. 11 cerros, or small hills, make up about 20 hectares of land which has been left uncultivated. One of these contains an authentic nature path, on which different species of flora and fauna are identified, and which can be visited.
