|Finca Adalgisa 2011 Malbec, Mendoza||Login||—||In Stock|
Angel Furlotti and his wife Adalgisa Meli arrived in Mendoza from Italy in 1900 and their family has been involved and influential in the wine industry there ever since. Through the generations they have been responsible for large and small brands throughout the Mendoza region, most importantly Bodegas Furlotti.
In 1936, Pedro Moretti and his wife Lila Elías bought a finca of two hectares of Malbec vines in Chacras de Coria. The vines had been planted in 1916.
The Furlotti and Moretti families would later be united through the marriage of two of their children and years later, in 2000 Lila Moretti and her daughter Gabriela Furlotti transformed their summer finca in Chacras de Coria into the first rural hotel of its kind: Finca Adalgisa. In 2003 they built Mendoza's smallest bodega, where only the Malbec grapes from the finca are being processed and in 2004 they released their first vintage. They produce around 5000 bottles of fine Malbec every year, with only 50 cases per year making it to the US. The wine is made by famed winemaker Carmello Patti, who focuses on balance and terroir.
