Merlot 2015

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 La Espana vineyard in Lujon de Cuyo, Mendoza. Vines average 40 years and sit at an elevation of 820 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.

Additional Information

Luigi Bosca Merlot is an intense purple color red wine, with aromas of ripe red and black fruit and subtle notes of cedron, very well integrated with the toasted of its ageing in oak. It is sound and round in the palate, slightly unctuous with a balanced acidity and strong body. It has fine tannins which add consistency and a very nice finish.
