- Pinot Noir 2016

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 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 12 months aging in new and second use French oak. The wine is lightly filtered prior to bottling.

"Gritty aromas of red fruits and spicy oak are a touch stalky at first but come around with airing. A fresh, healthy palate is slightly pulling and raw, but not coarse. Red plum, currant and tomato flavors finish with modest oak and length."

"This offers savory dark fruit flavors that are supported by juicy acidity. Dark currant notes and hints of maple show on the finish. Drink now."
