|See recent press for Vistalba MENDOZA Stephen Tanzer: “Carlos Pulenta was the former president and CEO of Salentein before leaving to start his own high-end operation in the Vistalba section of Lujan de Cuyo. The recently constructed cellar is an elegant and tranquil facility constructed largely of marble, slate, inert concrete and dark woods. Pulenta owns 53 hectares of red grapes around the winery, 80% of which is malbec planted in 1948 (the rest is newly planted malbec, bonarda, merlot and cabernet sauvignon). The varietal wines labeled Tomero are made in stainless steel tanks and are all about fruit; they are sourced from Pulenta's (father’s) 342 hectares of vines in the Uco Valley (Tupungato). The more serious Vistalba wines, from vineyards around the winery, are done in concrete and stainless steel, with two large wood fermenters reserved for the Corte A.”|
