Durigutti 2016 Malbec 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
  • 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.
