 A deep and bright red violet wine with balanced aromas and red fruit and sweet spice notes. It is refreshing and voluptuous in the mouth, with fine and gentle tannins, while it is clean and expressive in the palate, with a strong character, typicity and a deep finish with soft smoked hues as a result of its ageing in oak barrels. It is a great exponent of the variety and the terroir, with good ageing potential.

Luigi Bosca Malbec D.O.C is a true varietal with a deep purple colour and it is characterized by its aromas of cherries and ripe plums. It is also spicy with notes of coffee and blackberries and a bit toasted as a result of its aging in oak barrels. It has a solid structure, juicy and elegant on the palate, with a balanced acidity and well-rounded. A strong but subtle red wine, apart from its excellent typicity.

Recommended wine serving temperature Between 15°C and 18°C.
Recommended pairings

Perfect to enjoy special dishes, such as a rack of lamb with sautéed mushrooms, a rib eye steak with quinoa risotto, and a cheeseboard.

Climate

Continental climate, with a wide range of temperature between day and night, and well-defined seasons which contribute to a good growth of the vines. The altitude and its microclimate are ideal for the grapes since they provide a unique character. Many hours of good sunlight. 

Soil and vine

Old parcels of our Finca La Linda located in Vistalba have been selected to make this wine, complying with all the agronomic requirements of the Designation of Origin rules.The soil of the vineyard is clay loam, with a very good drainage and small size stones.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand-picked, clusters are selected, then they are destemmed and after that the best grains are chosen. The must is macerated in cold for 3 to 5 days at a temperature from 10°C to 15°C. Then it is fermented with selected yeast in small stainless steel tanks, with extraction works such as delestage and pressings. Once fermentation is finished, the wine is aged in new French oak barrels in which malolactic conversion takes place and it is matured for 12 to 14 months. Once the ageing is finished, the wine is stabilized, filtered and bottled. It is stored in the winery for at least 6 months before market release. 

Ageing in barrels

It is aged in new French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months.

Comments by the winemaker

Luigi Bosca is the pioneer winery in elaborating a Malbec under the Denomination of Origin Luján de Cuyo. This is the reason why it is a wine which seeks the ultimate expression of the terroir by harvesting its grape in its right level of ripeness and looking after every detail of the making. The climate during the 2017 harvest was cool to cold throughout the plant’s growth and the grapes’ ripeness cycle. For that reason, fresh aromas of red fruits such as plums, floral and spicy notes can be perceived in Luigi Bosca · Malbec D.O.C 2017. It is fresh and lively in the mouth, with sweet tannins and a persistent finish.
