Vintage 2011

Vineyard:
Finca Los Nobles, Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, and Finca El Paraíso, El Paraíso, Maipú, Mendoza.

Age of the vineyard:
90 years, 30 years.

Altitude:
1,050 meters, 960 meters.

Variety:
Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Syrah 8%, Merlot 7%.

Agronomists:
Engineer Alberto Arizu Sr / Engineer Juan Sola.

Climate:
Continental climate, with a wide range of temperature between day and night, and distinct seasons which contribute to good plant growth. The altitude and its microclimate are ideal for the grapes since they provide a unique character. Good luminosity with many sun hours.

Soil and vine:
This red wine is a blend of batches selected from two vineyards located in Luján de Cuyo and Maipú, both with outstanding health and phytosanitary cleanness. The soils are sandy-loam, with stones from different sizes, short organic matter and very good drainage.

Producer's comment:
Luigi Bosca De Sangre is a garnet red wine with violet hues that gets its great complexity and structure from the limestone soil. This strong and robust blend, with great intensity shows exuberant aromas of black fruits and spices. It is full-bodied and fleshy in the mouth, large volume, sweet tannins and velvety texture. A long finish and nice to the palate.
