Durigutti Bonarda Classico
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Hector and Pablo Durigutti have long been passionate about the potential of Bonarda in Argentina and consistently craft some of the best examples produced in Mendoza.
- This wine stands out among its peers due to the use of low yielding, late-picked fruit.
Varietal Composition: 100% Bonarda
Elaboration: Native yeast fermentation. Aged in stave-studded cement tanks (first use American oak) for 10 months. Unfined and unfiltered.
Tasting Notes: Lush and spicy ripe-fruit driven nose, with a broad, fairly explosive palate of red cherry, plum, chocolate, and mint. Bright, refreshing acidity holds everything together and makes this an excellent choice with spicy foods.

Brothers Héctor and Pablo Durigutti are two of Argentina’s most sought after consulting enologists. Hector first became known for his work alongside Alberto Antonini as one of the co-founders of Altos Las Hormigas, the forward thinking project that placed Argentine Malbec on the international map in the late nineties. Pablo comes with his own star studded resume which includes a stint at Catena and connections with more old-vine landowners than anyone else in the region.
