Last week I was invited to lunch with owner and director of Luigi Bosca wines, Alberto Arizu.
And when you dine with the oldest winery in Argentina, they’re ready to impress.
Upon arrival, I was greeted with a glass of their 2015 Chardonnay and then, since 75% of what the Arizu family produces is red, we headed in that direction.
Best known in Alberta for their #1 selling premium Argentine malbec, the brand’s portfolio offers over a dozen more options.
And I was ready taste them!
“The idea is not to compare the wines, it’s to experience the unique personalities. With the same grape, you can create 4 different wines” – Alberto Arizu
And though I tapped out after only sampling half of their collection, I was still able to decide on personal a favourite.
Luigi Bosca Malbec Doc “Single Vineyard” 2013.
Aromas of cherries and ripe plums, it is also spicy with notes of coffee and blackberries and a bit toasted as a result of aging in oak barrels.
A perfect Summer’s evening wine!
So grab a bottle and get your date night started!
