Durigutti Malbec Classico

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • Their flagship Malbec bottling, this wine represents what Hector and Pablo Durigutti do best – It is a juicy, forward example of the varietal while at the same time astonishingly complex on the palate.
  • High altitude fruit from La Consulta provides structure and power, while fruit from the warmer sector of Vistalba adds brightness and supple texture.

Varietal Composition: 100% Malbec

Elaboration: Native yeast fermentation. Aged in new American oak for 12 months. Unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Fragrant bouquet with floral notes, sweet spices and smoke, more black fruit [black cherry] than red fruit, intense, supple, dense and powerful.

PRODUCER BACKGROUND

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.
