Top four Argentine winemakers to watch

Ariel Angelini, Casa Petrini

Born in the province of Santa Fe, Angelini is winemaker at Casa Petrini, based in Tupungato in the Uco Valley. Casa Petrini is a boutique winery, with a capacity of 250,000 litres, with its own accommodation and restaurant.

Using a combination of concrete, oak and stainless steel vessels, Angelini separates the grapes from each plot to create terroir-focused wine.

The Malbec Report praises Angelini for performing the difficult task of “bringing something new to a classic wine”.

Particularly impressed by his Casa Petrini Roca Volcánica Malbec 2017, which it describes as the “Malbec version of a Pinot Noir”, the report notes how Angelini lays the Tupungato terroir bare “in a way that required no added frills, bells or whistles”.
