Malbec DOC Sangre, Bosca
Malbec DOC Single Vineyard De Sangre, Bosca was one of the first Argentine wines with a Designation of Origin. 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. The wine has fine and gentle tannins, while it is clean and expressive in the palate, with a strong character. There is 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.
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.
