With punchy dark fruits, lush texture, and surprising precision and restraint in equal measure, Furlotti has channeled 3 generations of winemaking tradition into a pure expression of high-altitude Mendoza Malbec. (We've loved their Finca Adalgisa label for a while; now we have another reason to cheer on Gabriela Furlotti and winemaker Carmello Patti - and visit the boutique hotel on their small property!). Boysenberry and blackberry jump out on first sip, with tobacco and leather that intensify as the palate unfolds. The benefit of high elevation offers bright acidity, lifting the fruit through the long, languid finish. A stunner at any price, completely outrageous at under 20 bucks a pop!
