Luigi Bosca Malbec Single Vineyard Lujan de Cuyo 2013

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Luigi Bosca is a pioneer winery in Mendoza with many old vine plantings in their estate vineyards. This wine comes from their Finca La Linda in Lujan De Cuyo and the vines average 70 years of age. The grapes are hand-picked in and clusters are hand selected. After destemming another triage is done to select only the best grapes. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks after which the wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months. Wine Spectator selected this wine as one of their Top 100 Wines of 2015 . With a score of 91 points they said "Decadently spiced, with intense dark chocolate and roasted plum flavors that feature notes of paprika. Black pepper accents show on the lush, mineral-filled finish. Needs time to open up. Best from 2017 through 2021."

The Arizus take pride in a tradition that was born more than one hundred years ago; years in which the family worked toward improving their technique and the observation and understanding of nature, thus giving rise to their approach to wine-making. This is also where their commitment to improving vintage after vintage and to better understand those who choose their wines takes root. Luigi Bosca’s future is challenging and is always thinking ahead. Its present is focused on the combination of daily work with the creation of new ideas. This is Bodega Luigi Bosca, this is how the Arizu family was created and this is how their history begins everyday, because their past is always a prologue to their future. Read less
