Vistalba Corte C 2016
Bodega Vistalba, founded by Carlos Pulenta, goes into a life story that is the most important reference when it comes to assessing the excellence of its wines. The descendant of an Italian family, Carlos Pulenta is the oldest son of Don Antonio Pulenta, one of the founders of the Bodega Peñaflor, 80 years ago, which endured until 1997, when it was sold.
Bodega Vistalba was built between 2001 and 2004 in a family-owned land at the heart of Vistalba (Luján de Cuyo). This is where Carlos Pulenta developed his personal viticulture project, involving members of his family, consultants, enologists and a valuable group of people who really know this land.
The winery is inspired in the Creole culture, resorting to cutting-edge technology and paying homage to traditional wine-making. It has been designed so that the entire winemaking process is completed using gravity and without pumps.
In 2009 Alejandro Bulgheroni, connected to the agroindustry sector through several projects since the year 1999, began his participation in Bodega Vistalba, working with Carlos toward a common goal: “producing top-quality wines of world renown, with a marked identity and personality”.
Tasting Notes: Intense red with purple hues, this wine offers aromas of red fruit, prunes and ripe cherries. On the palate, it shows silky tannins and notes of bing cherries, dry fruits and almond.
