Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

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 El Paraiso vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo- Maipo. Vines average 45 years and sit at an elevation of 780 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 14 months aging in new and second use French oak. The wine is lightly filtered prior to bottling.

    "Ruby-red. An element of musky reduction to the aromas of currant, tobacco, mocha and herbs. Then surprisingly soft and horizontal on the palate, offering good mouth coverage if only modest intensity and grip. This easygoing Cabernet finishes with soft tannins, a light herbal quality and decent length--for drinking soon."
