Angulo Innocenti Malbec 2013


SKU 03430


We had the great pleasure of visiting this estate during our 2016 trip to Argentina and Chile. Pedro Angulo and Angel Innocenti were winegrowers in their native Europe - Pedro in the Basque country and Angel in Tuscany. They immigrated to Argentina in the late 19th century and through hard work and perseverance found great success. Today the Angulo and Innocenti families have rekindled their immigrant winemaking roots. Alejandro Angulo and Mariano Innocenti, 3rd and 4th generation family members respectively, have decided to celebrate Pedro and Angel′s vintner past with the development of a unique terroir in La Consulta.

Made of 100% Malbec, this red shows the beautiful expression of La Consulta cool climate terroir with its poor sandy soils in the Finca Piedras Blancas (the farm of white stones). With a dark, opaque purple color, the wine shows the rich, dark fruit flavors and delicate violet notes very typical of the La Consulta terroir. The wine also shows the freshness, balance and mineral undertone that has made this area so appreciated for Malbec.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Malbec is a ripe and fruit-driven Malbec from fruit grown at their estate in La Consulta in the Valle de Uco. The wine fermented in a combination of stainless steel and cement vats with half of it matureing in used barrels for some eight months. It's a ripe, showy, aromatic and commercial Malbec with a mixture of flowers and spice aromas intermixed with smoky and meaty tones. The palate is medium to full-bodied with sweet, round tannins and some herbal and slightly bitter flavors towards the finish. 60,000 bottles produced.
