Chakana Estate Selection Malbec is the result of the identification of the best soil profiles and the selection of the best parcels of fruit from Chakana’s estate.

Chakana was founded in 2002 by the Pelizzatti family, something of a return to wine-making for the family whose ancestors had made wines in the wine-growing region of Valtellina in Italy in the 19th Century. The Chakana winery is located Agrelo, Mendoza and since 2002 the estate has grown to cover some 150 hectares with 120 hectares under vine, including their own vineyards in other areas of Mendoza 21 hectares in Mayor Drummond (Lujan de Cuyo) and two vineyards comprising 51 hectares in Altamira (Valle de Uco).In 2016, Chakana received biodynamic certification for the winery, vineyards and wines from Finca Nuna in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo where the winery is located. Finca Nuna, which in Quechua means ‘Soul’ or ‘Spirit’, has 80 hectares under supervision and is one of the largest certified biodynamic vineyards in Argentina. It was planted between 2002 and 2011 and uses drip irrigation. The winemaking style is based on minimal intervention with minimal use of sulphur or other additives and only indigenous yeasts. 

The 100% Malbec grapes for the Chakana Estate Selection Malbec are sourced from the estates vineyards at Finca Los Cedros, Finca Ayni and from selected vineyard parcels in Paraje Altamira, Tupungato Winelands (Gualtallary). The vineyards are all located at a height of 1100m. The vineyards here are sandy loam soils over gravel. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts, moderate use of sulphites. Unfined and, if not necessary, filtration is also avoided.  The wine is 70% aged in oak barriques and 30% in concrete tanks for 10 to 12 months.

Sustainable and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
