VINTAGE:

2015

REGION:

Lujan de Cuyo - Mendoza - Argentina

GRAPE VARIETY | METHOD:

Malbec | Petite Verdot | Tannat

The three varietals are vinified separately exactly the same way. The grapes are hand-picked and sorted, the must is cold macerated for 3/5 days, then fermented with selected yeast in small stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation is finished, the Malbec is aged in oak barrels where malolactic fermentation occurs and matured for 14 months. Once the ageing is finished the final blend is done. Wine is stored at least 6 months before release.

COLOUR:

Intense and bright violet red

NOSE:

Subtle and balanced aromas of red fruit and fresh spices.

PALATE:

It is agile and expressive, voluptuous, strong in the mouth, what adds great potential. Fresh and modern in the palate, vibrant, juicy, with very good fruit concentration. The well-integrated wood can be perceived in its persistent finish. It is a pioneering Malbec-blend, which still has a long life to run.

FOOD PAIRING:

Meat empanadas, lamb confit, beef casserole, spaghetti bolognese, tex mex tacos.

WINE MAKER:

Established in 1901 by Don Leoncio Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca is Argentina’s most ancient family-owned winery today. Currently, the winery is managed by the descendants of the founder and head wine maker Pablo Cuneo. This winery is located in Mendoza, the richest wine-producing regions in Argentina. The wines crafted in the Luigi Bosca winery are of high quality and intensity because of the unique desert climate of Mendoza and the fertile alluvial deposits in the soil.

The seven proprietary vineyards that are in the names of Bodega Luigi Bosca today are Finca La Linda, Finca Los Nobles, La Espana, Don Leoncio, El Paraiso, La Puntilla and Los Miradores. These are located across Argentina’s important wine regions of Maipu, Tupungato and Lujan de Cuyo. The best part of these vineyards is that they are all at an elevated level.
