Durigutti 2019 Bonarda Clasico

ABOUT THE PRODUCER
  • Brothers Héctor and Pablo Durigutti are two of Argentina’s most sought after consulting enologists.
  • 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

Perfumed aromas of violets, blackberries, blackcurrants and wild herbs. It’s medium- o full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Concentrated and chewy with a savory, saline finish. Drink or hold.  – James Suckling
