Angel Paulucci's family has produced wine in Italy since the early 1800's, and Angel arrived in Mendoza with his parents in 1953 at the age of 21. In 1960, he planted his first Malbec vineyard, and in 1970 he planted a special block of Malbec vines in Ugarteche at the southern limit of the Lujan de Cuyo department. If you get Angel talking, plan to stay awhile—he will regale you with childhood stories of enemy soldiers firing bullets into his family's red wine barrels so that they could quench their thirst. And of course, he will tell you about his vineyard: very tight spacing, superficial irrigation, lime-laden soils, and Malbec grapes that make an old-timer smile. Read less

Is it possible for pinot noir to taste like malbec? This wine is trying to say yes, with a generous mix of cherry and berry flavors that’s a little darker than usual, and a nose that echoes some of malbec’s typical inkiness. But it’s still a pinot after all, with a nice smooth finish. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=679)

Rustic and earthy this Argentine Pinot mirrors many a great French Burgundy. Light- to medium-bodied with lots of spice and mushroom and earth notes overlaid with black cherry and currant flavors. Great with risotto or paella.
