Luigi Bosca - Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
OverviewAs 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.

"Dark red. Aromas of redcurrant, plum, mocha and spicy, chocolatey oak. Supple, nicely concentrated and pliant, with red fruit, tobacco leaf and herb flavors framed by sound acidity and accented but not overwhelmed by oak. Finishes with a fine dusting of slightly herbal tannins and good length. Not hugely concentrated but nicely balanced and very successful for 2016 in Maipú. This elegant, seamless wine offers early appeal owing to its pliancy and balance."
