"Furlotti’s family history can help trace Argentina’s wine industry boom for over a century, as well as its demise at the turn of this century. Her decision in the early 2000s to rekindle the family story in wine, with a much narrower focus, also shows the changing vision of Argentine wine producers today. But before understanding why small is sometimes more beautiful, we have to put into context the century proceeding ours. ...
The modern era of Furlotti wine looks back to the very roots of how her family began, with Angel Furlotti as a small contrastista who worked the land and respected the traditions of his Italian ancestors. Gabriela too makes her wines in an artisanal and small-scale way, employing her vineyard workers with a fair-trade system so they too can take pride and ownership in the production. The Familia Furlotti wines take grapes from those same old vineyards that her great-grandfather originally established almost a century ago: in Altamira and Lunlunta." –Amanda Barnes in her article, “The Furlotti family: Pioneers of Mendoza’s Wine Industry Past & Present”
Tasting Notes: This deeply colored wine has a perfume marked by hints of redcurrant, pomegranate, wild raspberry, blackberry, and plum, along with a punch of peppery spice. These fresh red and black fruit flavors continue on the palate with their savory acidity: a balancing force with the wine’s plush, mouth-filling finish.
Pairing: This single-vineyard Malbec will pair nicely with any lamb-based dish.
