Luigi Bosca's La Linda range represents the pure expression of each varietal. Reds see minimum use of oak, while the whites are aged exclusively in stainless steel resulting in clean, fresh, fruit driven wines.
Terroir: Sourced from Bosca's Don Leoncio and Barrancas vineyards in the Maipu region of Mendoza. Vines average 30 years and sit at an elevation of 780 meters. Soils here are well drained and shallow based with a mix of clay, limestone and silt.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and meticulously sorted and destemmed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation takes place at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks followed by a brief aging of three months in cask.
Crimson color with black hints, and aromas of blackberries, black pepper and mulberries. In the mouth it is persistent, intense and spiced, with young tannins as a result of ageing 3 months in French and American oak casks.
Baking spice aroma with notes of vanilla and cassis; clean and juicy, with ice fruit, medium body and dark chocolate notes. Good value.
Remarkable quality for a modest price. Theres an attractive edginess to balance the super-ripe fruit that one rarely finds in California Cabs at any price.
