Description

Details

This winery from brothers Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta is located in Alto Agrelo in Mendoza. From Italian roots, they have continued their family tradition. Angelo Antonio Polenta emigrated from Italy to Mendoza in 1902 and soon changed his name to the Argentine Pulenta. He bought his first land in 1914, built a small winery on it, and thus established a family-owned company that grew until 1997 when it was sold. In 2001 his grandsons Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta decided to build their own winery. Their 135 hectares of high quality vineyards enjoy perfect climatic conditions, located at an altitude of 980m with melting ice from the Andes Mountains providing a natural irrigation system. Pulenta’s first vintage was 2002.

Whereas the La Flor wines are immediately delicious and fresh, bottled and released after 3 months in oak, the Estate reds see 12 months in new French oak as well as 12 months ageing in bottle before release. The top wine is the Gran Corte, an impressive blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Tannat.

Vinification
Manual harvest and selection of bunches and grapes in the winery. 12 to 24 hours of pre-fermentative maceration between 5 and 8 º c. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and concrete tanks. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in concrete pools. Oak aging for 6 months in second and third use barrels.

Tasting Notes
