Pedro Angulo & Angel Innocenti were vineyard growers 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 & Innocenti family has rekindled their immigrant winemaking roots. Alejandro Angulo and Mariano Innocenti, 3rd and 4th generation family members respectively, have decided to celebrate Pedro & Angel´s vintner past with the development of a unique terroir in 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 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.
The 120-hectare property is planted primarily with Malbec (50 has), Cabernet Sauvignon (20 has) and smaller amounts of Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontes; among others.
