2013 Gala 1, Luigi Bosca, Mendoza, Argentina (Magnum)
Luigi Bosca Gala 1 is an elegant blend in which the Malbec contributes notes of red fruit like cherries, morello cherries and plums, that are combined with those of other varietals that add spiced and violet hints. A round, smooth and lasting mouthfeel reminiscent of red fruit and vanilla. Ageing in new oak barrels lend great volume and elegance to this wine. 92 Points Wine Enthusiast
The Arizu family has a strong European legacy that dates back to the XVIII century, to the small village of Unzue in the Basque country.
In 1890, Leoncio Arizu arrived in Argentina searching for new opportunities, and in 1901 he founded the Winery in the province of Mendoza. Then he and the Boscas, another old and prosperous family that had emigrated from the Piemonte region in Italy, decided to join efforts and founded what is today Bodega Luigi Bosca – Arizu Family.
After 114 years, Leoncio Arizu’s legacy is still in the hands of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren who honor the tradition of producing great wines.
