Bodega Luigi Bosca: Producer of Testimonio Old Vine Argentine Malbec
Founded in 1901 by Don Leoncio Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca is the country’s oldest family-owned winery. Tradition, authenticity and elegance are the three foundations upon which all of the wines of Bodega Luigi Bosca line are based. Standing behind a century of history in each bottle, the Arizu family remains wedded to both tradition and innovation.
Argentine Malbec has always been a reliable choice for those who crave dark, rich, and polished red wines and the 2018 Testimonio Old Vines Malbec does not disappoint.
With wide temperature swings between cold nights and hot days, the Arizu family have come to appreciate that Mendoza’s desert climate and terroir offer unique benefits to the wines they produce: it amplifies the aromatics and colour and keeps the acidity balanced, while the alluvial deposits in the soil add minerality and depth.
Pioneers in Mendoza’s winemaking history, the Arizu family collaborated actively to create the Lujan de Cuyo Denomination of Origin (DO) appellation in 1988. Under its DO regulations, the appellation adheres to strict aging and viticultural rules, including the fact that vines must be a minimum of 50 years old.
After more than 110 years of hard work, guided by a spirit of innovation in pursuit of quality, the Arizu family has earned its position as a leader in the nation’s wine history.
Testimonio Old Vine Argentine Malbec: Characteristics
This is a bright deep purple and reddish Malbec, intense, juicy, with a voluptuous fruit nature. It shows delicate shades of vanilla and typical and well-integrated flavours of its aging in oak, a very solid tannin structure and balanced acidity. This is a complex wine, with a deep and elegant finish. A great example of the expressiveness of Mendoza’s terroir.
