Durigutti 2017 Bonarda Clasico

About The Producer
  • Brothers Héctor and Pablo Durigutti are two of Argentina's most sought after consulting ecologists.
  • 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.
About the Wine
  • 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 amongst its peers due to the use of low yielding, late-picked fruit
  • We’ve found this a surprisingly perfect pairing with Italian-American cuisine - Think lasagne, spaghetti and meatballs, manicotti….

Tasting Notes

A lovely blueberry and morello cherry nose. Ripe with generous, supple tannins and a long, rather complex finish that has some mineral character. Drink or hold. -James Suckling
