Angulo Innocenti Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina
The Angulo Innocenti Cabernet Sauvignon shows that Mendoza and in particular La Consulta is not only about Malbec. With a dark ruby red color, the wine shows concentrated red fruit flavors with great complexity of light mint, sweet spice and finely grained tannins. A new addition to the expression of the La Consulta terroir.
The Wine Advocate - "The two wines from Angulo Innocenti are outstanding values. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon features savory cassis and blackberry fruit, a smooth texture, and excellent length. It, too, is likely to provide pleasure through 2018+."
Angulo Innocenti Winery
Pedro Angulo and Angel Innocenti were winegrowers in their native Europe – Pedro in the Basque country and Angel in Tuscany. They immigrated to Argentina in the late 19th century and through hard work and perseverance found great success in their commercial activities.
Today the Angulo and Innocenti families have rekindled their immigrant winemaking roots. Alejandro Angulo and Mariano Innocenti, 3rd and 4th generation family members respectively, have decided to celebrate Pedro and Angel’s vintner past with the development of a unique terroir in La Consulta.

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.
