‘La Linda’ Malbec, Luigi Bosca
The Arizu family of Bodega Luigi Bosca has been making wine in Mendoza since 1901. Over the years they have accumulated a veritable encyclopedia 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 D.O.C, Luján de Cuyo D.O.C.
This wine comes from vineyards 15 kms south of Mendoza city, 960 m above sea-level, on the eastern slope of the foothills. Argentina’s trademark grape variety, although originally from the South of France in `Cahors`. Characteristically intense red colour and aromas of cherries, aged in French oak for 3 months. Great structure, fine and approachable, great with a steak.
