The Character

Tasting Notes It expresses freshness with a nose that combines blueberries, black currants, iodine and spices. The palate is silky, with layers to discover. Fresh blue fruit, bright acidity and a medium finish with good shape and tension.

About Durigutti

Brand Story

At their winery in rural Luján, Héctor & Pablo Durigutti craft artisan wines including top Malbecs & two of the country's best examples of Bonarda. Héctor first became known for his work as one of the co-founders of Altos Las Hormigas - project that placed Argentine Malbec on the international map. With extensive experience in Europe (including a stint at Antinori), Héctor has developed a unique winemaking style blending old world tradition with modern innovation. Héctor's younger brother Pablo has quickly built a reputation for himself as well, with a resume including work with Catena. Today, both brothers are some of the country's most sought-after consulting enologists. This boutique project that bears their name is their pride & joy.
