Luigi Bosca Testimonio Old Vines Malbec 2019
- Rich, full-bodied
The history of Bodega Luigi Bosca dates back to the turn of the 20th century when the Arizu family from Basque country and the Bosca family from Piemonte joined efforts upon their arrival in Argentina. After four generations, the Arizu family still runs the day-to-day operations as the winery charges ahead well into the 21st century.
Testimonio is sourced from 40-year old vines in Vistalba, the first wine area you encounter upon leaving the city of Mendoza. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented under the strict watch of the winemaker and sent to rest in French oak for eight months. It’s bright, intense and voluptuous with typical Mendoza fruit and a backbone of vanilla from the time in barrel. Deep and elegant, this malbec will develop very well for next decade if you have the patience.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Mendoza is a beautiful region within Argentina that is known for their powerful Malbecs, although the region has begun to branch out to prove that they're not a one grape wonder. Being responsible for nearly 80% of the total production, the region produces Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah, Tempranillo, Chenin and various other grapes. Food focused wines that will satisfy any curious wine drinker.
