Malbec 2013

Luigi Bosca

As a tribute to the land and to those who work it, Luigi Bosca have worked more than 110 years to understand the intention of the vine. The passion of four generations of the same family, shown in Bodega Luigi Bosca’s collection, reflects the result of an ambitious effort started many years ago: the wish to express the thorough version of the essence of Argentine wine.

Terroir: Sourced from Bosca's east facing La Linda vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo- Maipo. Vines average 50 years and sit at an elevation of 960 meters. Soils here are well drained and shallow based with a mix of limestone and silt.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and meticulously sorted and destemmed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation occurs at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks followed by 12 months aging in new and second use French oak. The wine is lightly filtered prior to bottling.

Additional Information

Deep ruby red color, with aromas of ripe red fruit, spices and black pepper. The palate intensity is complemented by the softness and sweetness of tannins. Full-bodied and well structured. Pair with grilled or broiled red meat, deer, hard cheese.

    "Good medium red. Expressive musky aromas of raspberry, mocha, pepper and spices, plus a sexy whiff of woodsmoke. Suave, savory and smooth on the palate, with red fruit and spice flavors dominating. Nicely restrained sweetness here. Not quite as concentrated or fleshy as the De Sangre blend but equally stylish and fine-grained, finishing with even suppler tannins."

    "A suave and refined style, with lilting spice and sandalwood notes to the flavors of dried raspberry, red currant and rose hip. Savory midpalate, with a dried beef note on the well-structured finish. Drink now through 2019."
