A terrific Argentine red wine made from the country's classic Malbec grape. Smoky with lots of toasty oak on the nose and palate. Black fruit with campfire on the finish. The grapes are grown in the Finca La Linda and Vistalba vineyards in Mendoza. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Pair with grilled meats and roast beef.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crowd pleasing, dry and richly concentrated. Garnet coloured. Dark plum, cassis, blackberry. Juicy and dense. Great value. Food friendly or enjoy on its own. Pairs well with gourmet burgers. Tasted 2015 vintage in April 2018 on World Malbec Day 2018. 90 points
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lots of sun in this Malbec. On the nose, ripe blackberry and strawberry, plum, vanilla, leather, cedar, cinnamon, black pepper, and a touch of eucalyptus. On the palate, ripe blueberry, plum, and sun-soaked strawberry with a touch of vanilla, cocoa, sweet spice, and a kick of black pepper. This is a full bodied Red with medium tannins and balanced acidity.

Wine-Food Pairing: Juicy steak grilled on the barbecue.

Tasted August 2018
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A tasty, and classic example of Malbec. Robust aromas of plum, cassis, and earthy tones. Dry, full bodied, tart acidity and structured tannins. Fruit forward on the palate and the finish. Pair with grilled steak with chimichurri, or ribs.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Classic and consistent! The Luigi Bosca '15 Malbec showcases long lingering black plum, cassis and earthy underbrush notes. Structured grippy tannins and concentrated offer a hefty mouthfeel balanced by juicy acidity. Enjoy with braised beef short ribs. Tasted April 2018 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
