Luigi Bosca Single Vineyard Malbec 2016
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo|
"A complex malbec that shows violets, blueberries, strawberries, chocolate and hazelnuts. Hints of licorice too. Medium to full body, firm and well-integrated tannins and a deep and precise finish. Drink now or hold."
"Pure and fresh-tasting, offering concentrated flavors of dark currant, blackberry and plum tart. The sculpted finish layers on rich spice and chocolate notes, with hints of pepper and mint. Drink now through 2024."
The dark, juicy, concentrated and balsamic 2016 Malbec D O C is one of the few proper Controlled Appellation wines (D.O.C.) from Luján de Cuyo. It matured for 14 months in new French oak barrels, which marked the wine, especially on the palate where you'll find an abundance of oak-related flavors and some astringent tannins, giving it a slight rusticity. It needs food. 210,000 bottles produced.
