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) on the outskirts of Mendoza. 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.
This wine is comprised of about 80% Malbec and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Great intensity with aromas and flavors of plums, eucalyptus and spice. 20% of the blend is aged for 12 months in French oak, adding to the complexity.
