Luigi Bosca Malbec 2016

SKU 30376


Luigi Bosca Malbec D.O.C is a deep violet red, with delightful aromas of great tipicity: ripe red fruits (sweet cherries and plums) with spicy and coffee bean hints filling the background. Expressive of its ageing in oak through well-integrated toasty accents. A core of delicate fruit flavors; firm tannins, round texture and a very pleasant acidity. Elegant throughout to a long expansive finish.

Wine AdvocateOriginally 100% from Luján de Cuyo, in the last few years they started blending in some grapes from the Valle de Uco, and the 2016 Malbec has some 30% grapes from the Valle de Uco. Sixty percent of the volume matured in used barriques for 12 months, yet the wine comes through as quite balsamic and spicy, with notes of incense and cigar ash. The palate reveals some grainy tannins and a dry, astringent finish. 800,000 bottles produced.
