Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright ruby red wine

Nose

Intense and balanced aromas, with black fruit and spicy notes. 

Palate

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.

Producer

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.

Winemaking

Manual harvest, bunch selection, stalking and manual berry selection, followed by pre-fermentation cold maceration at a temperature of 8°C. Fermentation takes place in small stainless steel barrels at a controlled temperature of 28°C using selected yeasts. After the alcoholic fermentation, part of the wine is aged for eight months in French oak barrels. Once it concludes, the wine is bottled by gently filtering it.
