Pulenta Estate, the winery of brothers Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta, is located in Alto Agrelo, Mendoza. The 135 hectares of high quality vineyards enjoy perfect climatic conditions, with melting ice from the Andes Mountains providing a natural irrigation system and altitudes of 980m. From Italian roots, Eduardo is a 3rd generation winemaker and together with Hugo, have continued their family traditions by building their own winery. Angelo Antonio Polenta emigrated from Italy to Mendoza in 1902 and soon changed his name to the Argentine Pulenta. He bought his first land in 1914, built a small winery on it, and thus established a family-owned company that grew until 1997 when it was sold out to international capitals. In 2001 grandsons Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta decided to build their own winery with Pulenta`s first vintage coming in 2002.
The La Flor wines are immediately delicious and fresh, bottled and released after 3 months in oak. This is intense with aromas of ripe red fruits with floral notes accompanied by vanilla and tobacco (imparted from the oak). Its mouth feel is rounded and full, with softened tannins.
