about the wine
old vine fruit from lujan de cuyo (vineyard planted in 1928) and la consulta (vineyard planted in 1940) give this release substantial color, attack, and body
many argentine “reserva” malbecs are sadly dominated by excessive oak – this is not one of those wines – the use of well-seasoned barrels allows the heirloom vineyard fruit to shine bright tasting notes
ripe and racy, with a briary underpinning to the focused beam of raspberry and boysenberry fruit. the finish is layered with mocha and licorice notes. this “big” wine matches sensationally with charcoal-grilled beef.
about the producer
hector and pablo were born in mendoza, the cradle of wine and were raised together. their childhood and their home were always connected to a sensorial world, with aromas, ingredients, and flavors that, over time, motivated them to choose the path to become enologists. as adults, they would find these familiar memories and similar passions. since 2002 they have been dedicated to their project as a small family winery. today the brothers have evolved to form the new generation of winemakers, leading an evolutionary change in argentina’s viticulture. with that same spirit, the durigutti brothers craft their wines and have started to write their own history, a family legacy, in a chosen place where they live and work daily with dedication.
