Edicion Limitada 2020.
Known as the most important wine region in Argentina, Mendoza produces full-bodied red wines and is particularly known for its Malbec, which is my favourite of all red wines. Luigi Bosca de Sangre Malbec Edicion Limitada 2020 will likely turn the heads of many who have limited themselves to French offerings.
The winery that today produces Luigi Bosca wines was founded in 1901 by Leoncio Arizu, a Spanish citizen from Navarra who settled in Mendoza in 1890. Luigi Bosca launched the first Malbec DOC in Argentina and Latin America. Bodega Luigi Bosca is the country’s oldest family-owned winery. Today third and fourth generations of the Arizu family, Alberto Senior and Alberto Junior, both run this polished wine business.
De Sangre is the name of this particular winery, which is part of the Luigi Bosca collection. This wine is made from grapes grown in select plots of Finca Miralejos, located in Paraje Altamira. It’s a Malbec of character and distinction which reflects the essential expressions of a fine Malbec and the skill of its producers.
