Angulo Innocenti Unisono
Angulo Innocenti Unisono is the premium wine from this tiny artisan family winery, and is one of the finest wines from Argentina I have ever tasted.
Huge fruit, super smooth, black and red fruit flavours with vanilla on the finish. Very silky in the mouth with superb balance. I describe this wine as "Argentina in a glass". It is something special and well worth the £30 price tag.
"Unísono is a blend which changes every year, using only highest quality grapes from each vintage. It has an impressive bouquet, rich and generous with scents of dark plum, boysenberry, fresh dates and a smear of dark chocolate. The palate is fullbodied with a luscious entry. It has a gloriously seductive, velvety texture and the rounded supple finish is a delight."
