Immigrant Roots
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.
Alejandro Angulo - the 3rd generation
Alejandro was the first person to visit the property in La Consulta, where today Finca Piedras Blancas is located. He has always been in contact with farms and estates, and since he was very young he has dreamt of a family winemaking project. Today, he belongs to a group of wine aficionados which is more than 15 years old - they get together once in a month, to taste and discuss new wines, trends and different styles. Alejandro learned many things about viticulture and winemaking from his grandfather Pedro, who was a vintner in the Basque country. Alejandro is a true wine lover.
Mariano Innocenti - the 4th generation
Mariano tried his first wine at a Sunday family lunch when he was 12 years old. His father, Miguel Angel, told him about his great grandfathers and their immigrant winemaking roots. The seeds were planted. As Mariano grew up, he continued to cultivate his interest in wine, and his dream to celebrate his great grandfathers with a family winemaking project.
In 2004, Mariano took the first step toward realizing his dream with the planting of the family vineyard, Finca Piedras Blancas, a 100 hectare property in La Consulta.

The privileged terroir of La Consulta
La Consulta is located in the very southern tip of the Uco Valley in the San Carlos county, some 75 miles to the south of the city of Mendoza.
The district varies in altitude from 3,000 - 3,500 feet above sea level at the foot of the majestic Andes. Its high altitude and southerly location combine to offer warm sunny days with cool mountain nights. The warm sunny days lend a rich, concentration of black fruit flavors together with a soft, supple texture. The cool mountain nights contribute intense floral aromatics and racy acidity to the wines.
Finca Piedras Blancas
Mariano and his uncle Alejandro chose La Consulta for its rich heritage and long tradition as Mendoza′s premier region for Malbec, dating back to the early 20th century.
The 284 acre property is planted primarily to Malbec (123 acres), with Cabernet Sauvignon (49 acres) and smaller amounts of Syrah, Tempranillo and Cabernet Franc.
In 2010 Mariano was able to take another important step in the realization of his dream - to make a wine that would carry his family′s name.
Mariano walked the vineyard that year more than ever before, carefully watching over the many lots of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. He wanted to make sure that only the best fruit was used for this first vintage. In the end, a special selected harvest, carried out over two different harvest dates, of lots 4 and 9 for the Malbec and lots 1 and 8 for the Cabernet Sauvignon were used for the first Angulo | Innocenti wines.
A careful vinification
The careful attention which Mariano used in the vineyard was transfered into the fruit′s vinification as well. Karim Mussi, well-known winemaker at Altocedro, is winemaker here. All of the grapes underwent a manual double selection, first for clusters and then even grape by grape, ensuring that only the absolute best fruit went into this inaugural vintage. The fruit was vinified at low temperatures to ensure intense aromatics and a rich yet soft and supple texture.
