Luigi Bosca La Linda Malbec 2019
6 bottle or more Buy Elegant and balanced Argentinian Malbec.
With deep historical roots in Argentina’s Mendoza wine region, Bodega Luigi Bosca has a longstanding commitment to innovation and quality. Founded in 1901 by Don Leoncio Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca is the country’s oldest family-owned winery. Today third & fourth generation of the Arizu family, Alberto Junior and Alberto Senior both run this fine wine business.
With wide temperature swings between cold nights and hot days, the Arizu family have come to appreciate that Mendoza’s desert climate and terroir offer unique benefits to the wines they produce: it amplifies the aromatics and colour and keeps the acidity balanced, while the alluvial deposits in the soil provide minerality and depth.
Pioneers in Mendoza’s winemaking history, the Arizu family collaborated actively to create the Lujan de Cuyo Denomination of Origin (DO) appellation in 1988. Under its DO regulations, the appellation adheres to strict aging and viticultural rules, including the fact that vines must be a minimum of 50 years old. But the Arizu family did not stop there. At the forefront of a region-wide drive for improving the quality of Mendoza’s wines, Bodega Luigi Bosca has embraced the philosophy of bio-dynamics and biodiversity. The Arizu family believes that biodiversity in each vineyard’s ecosystem further enriches a harvest’s full potential by adding other plants such as olive and chestnut trees that complement and coexist with the vines during each growing season.
100% estate grown Malbec is sourced from 30 year old vines in Lujan de Cuyo at (960 meters altitude) followed by short maturation time in oak. Fragrant violet aromatics and spice with lovely depth of blackberries and red fruits on a medium to full bodied palate. 2019 was an excellent vintage in Argentina so some power, depth of fruit here .. again with balance and fine grained tannins. Sip on this and you will hear the accordion and feel the intensity and style of tango…Viva Argentina!
