Vinous 89 points - Bright, medium ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, violet and smoke are complicated by licorice and leather nuances. Boasts an attractive balance of sweetness and acidity, with almost Syrah-like dark fruit flavors showing a sexy gamey quality as well as a hint of graphite minerality. No shortage of personality here! Nicely intense Malbec with ripe, even tannins and very good length. Aged in concrete vats and used barrels.
The Angulo Innocenti Malbec shows the beautiful
expression of La Consulta cool climate Malbec. With a dark, opaque
purple color, 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.
|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 in their commercial activities.
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.
