Pinot Noir, Bodega Luigi Bosca
Pinot Noir Bosca is a truly refined example of Pinot Noir with a fresh fruit-driven character. It is made with grapes from 45 year old vines in Maipú, Mendoza. Notes of strawberry, violet and chocolate complement the intense and velvety palate making this a very attractive wine.
The Arizu family of Bodega Luigi Bosca has been making wine in Mendoza since 1901. Over the years they have accumulated a veritable encyclopaedia of knowledge of the region’s incredible variety of altitudes, soils and microclimates. Four generations later, Bodega Luigi Bosca is still very much a family business, currently run by Alberto Arizu Jr, one of Argentina’s most respected wine figures. They are also one of Argentina’s leading estates, famed for having some of Mendoza’s best vineyard sites and their involvement in the creation of Argentina’s first DOC, the Luján de Cuyo DOC.
Luigi Bosca owns seven vineyards located in Mendoza, covering more than 700 hectares. Despite the size of their operation, absolutely no compromise is made for quality and attention to detail, and all of the grapes are hand-picked. In the vineyard, the team apply biodynamic principles across the estate, though they do not hold certification. Endlessly dedicated to understanding the potential of their vineyards, Luigi also produces a series of single-vineyard and terroir-focused wines.
Grower: Bodega Luigi Bosca
As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
