“This is direct and focused with beautiful depth and pureness. Full-bodied and very virtical with impressive purity of tannins and blueberries, crushed stones and salt. Drink or hold.” ~ JS
Vaglio is owned and operated by José Lovaglio Balbo. In 2013 he started to rent an old, small gravity fed concrete winery in Tupungato and refurbished it to meet his needs. He produces single vineyard wines, from different sub regions and soil types, that are all vinified in the same way with minimal intervention and oak contact. Jose aims to showcase the different microclimates of Northern Mendoza through terroir driven wines. José is also one of the head winemakers at Dominio del Plata and the son of Susanna Balbo. Each of Jose's wines represent different stages of his life. Jose has a bright future with his burning desire to dig deeper and push limits compounded with his access to the logistics and infrastructure of his family’s winery.
