2013 Gala 2, Luigi Bosca, Mendoza, Argentina
An extremely complex and seductive blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Intense purple colour with concentrated aromas of ripe black berries and toasty aromas from 14 months ageing in French oak. A wine with outstanding structure power and concentration. Long velvety and smooth.
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.
