Cellar for up to 15 years. It is recommended to decant it for an hour before service. The award-winning El Enemigo was created when Alejandro Vigil and Adrianna Catena, Nicolas’s youngest daughter, decided to create the Aleanna winery, in the high-altitude wine region of Mendoza, to rescue some of the forgotten traditional techniques of Argentine viticulture. The ultimate goal of the winery is, according to Alejandro Vigil, to obtain a wine with the least possible intervention, a wine in which the oenologist’s hand does not leave a mark, but only serves as an interpreter of the terroir. The grapes come from the district of San Carlos, in the Uco Valley, at 1450 meters above sea level, on alluvial soils of glacial origin. Harvest takes place in distinct phases over a period of approximately a month and a half to ensure that each grape reaches perfect ripeness. To give the wine freshness and extra tannins, 30% of the stalks are kept. The wine is then fermented in used French oak barrels and aged for 15 months in ancient centenary foudre. El Enemigo Gran Enemigo El Cepillo is an austere and well-defined wine with an intense minerality reminiscent of crushed stone and graphite, toasted and spicy traces given by the oak, accompanied by extraordinary juiciness and vibrant acidity. It is deep and full-bodied on the palate, expressing flavors of black fruit, refreshing herbaceous tones, and fresh tobacco leaves. Try it with lamb, and rich grilled meat.
