Durigutti Reviews from Stephen Tanzer!
2009 Durigutti Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza, 90 Points Bright dark red. Sweeter on the nose than the 2010, offering scents and flavors of currant, plum, mocha and earth. At once saline and sweet, and a bit more concentrated than the 2010. The fat middle palate is nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes broad, spicy and long, with a fine dusting of tannins that spread out to coat the palate. Lovely balance here.
2010 Durigutti Malbec Mendoza, 90 Points
Bright dark red. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, currant, violet, licorice and menthol lifted by hints of herbs and pepper. Supple, ripe and nicely concentrated, with mid-palate sweetness restrained by vigorous, harmonious acidity. Finishes thicker than the 2010 cabernet, with fine-grained tannins and lovely lingering fruits and herbs.
2008 Durigutti Malbec Reserva Mendoza, 92 Points Bright red-ruby. Pure, discreet aromas of black fruits and flowers; classy and vibrant. Silky on entry, then primary, fine-grained and deep in the middle, with a distinctly primary character and lovely definition of dark berry flavor. The seamless finish offers suave tannins, excellent energy and subtle building length. Beautifully balanced malbec with real class–not at all a blockbuster. And a great value.
