2019 Luigi Bosca Paraiso

The new icon of the Arizu family was presented during the celebrations of its 120 years. Although the name is inspired by his Finca El Paraíso de Maipú, it is a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon conceived by the oenologist Pablo Cúneo from a selection of the best grapes from his own different vineyards. Balanced and elegant, with delicate aromas and an expressive palate, with notes of black fruit and spices. Well-integrated aging provides softness and depth. 

Tasting Notes

A blend that pays tribute to an exceptional vineyard of the family, and that is born from the most celebrated harvests, achieving its most accomplished expression as years go by. A renewed dream, a utopia; our idea of Paradise.

Colour

Violet red, bright and deep.

Nose

Its aromas are intense, balanced and elegant, with a very precise and complex fruity expression at the same time. Its delicate perfumes are reminiscent of red fruits and spices.

Mouth

Graceful and broad in the mouth, its fruity character is very well integrated with the ageing notes. It is fresh, accurate harmonious and smooth in the palate, while its persistent finish allows us to perceive its great ageing potential.

Winemaking

The grapes are harvested manually, then a selection of bunches is carried out; and destemmed. The must is cold macerated for 5 days at a temperature of 8°C to 10°C, and a percentage of the Malbec undergoes carbonic maceration.

Then the Malbec is fermented in small stainless steel tanks for 10 days at a temperature between 24-28°C, with constant extraction work, such as stamping and delestage, and the Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented in roller fermenters.

After the alcoholic fermentation, a post-fermentative maceration is carried out.

History

Established by Leoncio Arizu in 1926, Finca El Paraíso is the oldest, most extensive estate with the greatest variety of vine varieties implanted in Bodega Luigi Bosca. There, among its vineyards, stands the château-style mansion in which different generations of the Arizu family lived. Its walls and its imprint are also part of the history, present and future of Bodega Luigi Bosca. Finca El Paraíso wines are characterized by their roundness, their elegance and their tense and sober body.

"An immediate sense of cherries in Kirsch promises fruit as well as potency. The palate comes in smoothly, with ripe and pliable tannins acting as a soft backdrop for ripe and expressive fruit in red and darker shades of cherry. Fine freshness counters the richness. The finish shows a real lick of chocolate and demonstrates the tannic density."  Anne Krebiehl MW
