Vaglio Aggie Malbec Valle de Uco 2017 (750ml)

95 pts James Suckling
Notes of butterscotch, chocolate, and baked blueberry pie sprinkled with powdered sugar; a velvety mid-palate laced with hazelnuts round out this medium-bodied, mineral-driven Malbec.

Vaglio is the personal project of José Lovaglio Balbo, son of Argentine wine pioneer Susanna Balbo. He is one of the head winemakers at her winery, Dominio del Plata, in Lujan de Cuyo, but with Vaglio, which he owns and operates independently from his family's winery, José aims to showcase the different microclimates of northern Mendoza through terroir-driven wines.

In 2013 he found an old, small gravity-fed concrete winery in Tupungato for rent and refurbished it to meet his needs. Here, he produces single vineyard wines from different sub-regions and soil types, all vinified in the same way with minimal intervention and oak contact. Each of Jose's wines represent different stages of his life. With his burning desire to dig deeper and push limits, compounded with his years of experience at his family's winery,

100% Malbec from Capataz, a 52-acre vineyard planted in 2008 at 3,800 feet altitude in Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. The soils are calcareous, stony soils of alluvial origin; the vines are farmed sustainably. The fruit is destemmed, then vinified with native yeasts over 40 days. Aged for 8 months, 40% in new French oak.
