Luigi Bosca - Malbec 2018

Overview

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 La Linda vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo- Maipo. Vines average 50 years and sit at an elevation of 960 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 12 months aging in new and second use French oak. The wine is lightly filtered prior to bottling.

"A Malbec from Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley that spent 12 months aging in French barrels. Bright purple in the glass. The mild nose offers ripe plum and hints of violet over a gentle bed of oak. Juicy on the palate, displaying moderate freshness and slightly sparky tannins. With the pleasantly cleansing finish, this is a classic profile for Mendoza."

"This wine offers ripe blackberries, as well as some blue fruit, violets and licorice. Medium-to full-bodied with slightly austere tannins and a dry-mineral finish. Drink now."
