Durigutti 2011 Familia Malbec
About The Producer
About the Wine
Héctor and Pablo's top bottling is their "Familia" Malbec. This modern, concentrated release originates from two heirloom-quality vineyards in Maipú (Lunlunta) and San Carlos (La Consulta). In order to add complexity and depth, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah were blended into the cuvee in small amounts. Grapes were fermented with native yeasts and the wine was neither filtered, fined, or cold-stabilized.
Vintage: 2011 | Wine Type: Red Wine
This has plenty of blackcurrants, plum liqueur, creme de cassis, tar, vanilla and a touch of tobacco. Full body and deliciously juicy tannins, but this is also polished and very much dialed-in. There's a driven line of acidity throughout, and the finish is fruity, chewy and structured. A blend of malbec, syrah, cabernetf ranc, petit verdot and cabernet sauvignon. This is worth getting your hands on. Drink in 2021. -James Suckling
