Syrah 2013

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 Finca El Paraiso vineyard in Maipu, Mendoza. Vines average 40 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.

Additional Information

Luigi Bosca Syrah is an intense purple color and highly aromatic wine. Notes of black plum, redcurrant, bay leaf and hints of chocolate are detected. There is a delicate balance between intensity, body and structure in the palate. It is mouthfilling, with firm and ripe tannins, a meaty and firm palate and a prolonged, persistent finish.
