- Malbec D.O.C. 2017


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.

In 1989 Luigi Bosca collaborated actively to create the Lujan de Cuyo Denomination of Origin, the only D.O.C. established in Argentina, proudly bringing it into line with other D.O.C.s worldwide. To be labeled D.O.C. a wine must adhere to strict regulations; vines must hale from a single vineyard and average 50 years or older. Plantings must be kept to under 550 plants per hectare with yields of not more than 10,000kg. In the winery, wines must be aged a minimum of 12 months in barrique. Additionally, each bottle must be numbered.

Terroir: Sourced from Bosca's estate vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo- Maipu. Vines average 70 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 14 months aging in new and second use French oak. The wine is lightly filtered prior to bottling.

Additional Details edit

"Plenty of depth and a good tannin structure support the ripe blueberry and blackberry aromas of this generous, but rather lively malbec. Although there’s an impression of sweetness on the mid-palate, the finish is quite dry and fresh. Earth, spice and dark fruit at the finish. Shows balance. Drink or hold."

"Bright, dark red. Some soil and spice tones to the mellow aromas of plum, redcurrant and licorice. Plump, fairly fine-grained and classically dry in an Old World way, with moderately intense red fruit flavors accented by black pepper and spices. The tannins are a bit dusty but essentially soft. A sound example of its Vistalba appellation. "
