Bright ruby red wine
Intense and balanced aromas, with black fruit and spicy notes.
It is voluptuous and warm in the mouth, with a smoked aftertaste and incipient tannins. It is clean and vivacious in the palate, featuring a well- defined character and an expressive finish with a floral touch. Having great potential to add complexity after storage, this is a wine that reflects the vineyard’s age and varietal purity.
The winery that today produces Luigi Bosca wines was founded in 1901 by Leoncio Arizu, a Spanish citizen from Navarra who settled in Mendoza in 1890. Located in the Vistalba valley, in the Luján de Cuyo region, an area that, due to its characteristics, achieved the first " Denomination of Controlled Origin "of America. Luigi Bosca launched the first Malbec DOC in Argentina and Latin America.
