Pinot Noir 2019

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.

Bright ruby red color. Full-bodied, fresh, fruity, velvety. Aromas of red fruit, strawberry, violet and chocolate. Vigorous, attractive, forceful and elegant. Pair with white meat and soft cheese.

    "A Pinot Noir from Luján de Cuyo and La Consulta, aged for 12 months in used oak. Cherry-red in hue. The nose presents notes of rose petal and cherry plus a hint of cedar and moderate intensity. Expressive rather than complex, it is terse on the palate, with intense flavor, mild freshness and a compelling aftertaste. A classic, fruity profile."

    "This has attractive, sliced fresh strawberries and a fresh, light herbal edge, too. The palate is smooth, light and fresh with detailed, even and easy style, making it very drinkable. Drink now."
