Gala 2, Bosca
Gala 2, Bosca is a deep and bright burgundy coloured wine. There are delicate and harmonious aromas, with forest fruit and sweet spices notes. It is voluptuous, well bodied and fresh in the mouth, with fine tannins. Firm in the palate, with an elegant and expressive character and smooth vegetal hints that are characteristic of Cabernet Sauvignon. Its long and appealing finish helps to perceive the fully-integrated smoked aromas of the ageing process. It is a red wine that always grows in complexity after its storage.
The Arizu family of Bodega Luigi Bosca has been making wine in Mendoza since 1901. Over the years they have accumulated a veritable encyclopaedia of knowledge of the region’s incredible variety of altitudes, soils and microclimates. Four generations later, Bodega Luigi Bosca is still very much a family business, currently run by Alberto Arizu Jr, one of Argentina’s most respected wine figures. They are also one of Argentina’s leading estates, famed for having some of Mendoza’s best vineyard sites and their involvement in the creation of Argentina’s first DOC, the Luján de Cuyo DOC.
Luigi Bosca owns seven vineyards located in Mendoza, covering more than 700 hectares. Despite the size of their operation, absolutely no compromise is made for quality and attention to detail, and all of the grapes are hand-picked. In the vineyard, the viticultural team apply biodynamic principles across the estate, though they do not hold certification. Endlessly dedicated to understanding the potential of their vineyards, Luigi Bosca also produces a series of single-vineyard and terroir-focused wines.
