Tasting Notes

This is a bright deep purple and reddish Malbec, intense, juicy, with a voluptuous fruit nature. It shows delicate shades of vanilla and typical and well-integrated flavours of its aging in oak, a very solid tannin structure and balanced acidity. This is a complex wine, with a deep and elegant finish. A great example of the expressiveness of Mendoza’s terroir.

The Producer

Bodega Luigi Bosca

With deep historical roots in Argentina’s Mendoza wine region, Bodega Luigi Bosca has a longstanding commitment to innovation and quality. Founded in 1901 by Don Leoncio Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca is the country’s oldest family-owned winery. Today, Alberto Jr. and Alberto Sr., who represent the third and fourth generations of the Arizu family, jointly manage this venerable enterprise. With wide temperature swings between cold nights and hot days, the Arizu family have come to appreciate that Mendoza’s desert climate and terroir offer unique benefits to the wines they produce: it amplifies the aromatics and color and keeps the acidity balanced, while the alluvial deposits in the soil add minerality and depth. Pioneers in Mendoza’s winemaking history, the Arizu family collaborated actively to create the Lujan de Cuyo Denomination of Origin (DO) appellation in 1988. Under its DO regulations, the appellation adheres to strict aging and viticultural rules, including the fact that vines must be a minimum of 50 years old. But the Arizu family did not stop there. At the forefront of a region-wide drive for improving the quality of Mendoza’s wines, Bodega Luigi Bosca has embraced the philosophy of bio-dynamics and biodiversity. The Arizu family believes that biodiversity in each vineyard’s ecosystem further enriches a harvest’s full potential by adding other plants such as olive and chestnut trees that complement and coexist with the vines during each growing season. Bodega Luigi Bosca’s key vineyards in Mendoza are located in the prime growing areas of Maipu, Tupungato and Lujan de Cuyo. The seven proprietary names belonging to Bodega Luigi Bosca are: Finca La Linda, Finca Los Nobles, La España, Don Leoncio, El Paraíso, La Puntilla and Los Miradores. Located between 780 and 1,150 meters above sea level, each of these vineyards is watered with pure melt-water coming down from the Andes Mountains.
