Luigi Bosca de Sangre 2017

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaDe Sangre is a Cabernet Sauvignon led blend (85%), with 8% Syrah and 7% Merlot, from vineyards in the highest areas of Luján de Cuyo (820 - 1050m), and vines 30-90 years old. Post ferments in stainless, the three varieties are separately aged for 1 year in French (90%) and American (10%) oak. Savoury, with black cherry, dark raspberry, tobacco, graphite down the long, structural palate. The tannins are ample but long and well integrated into the fruit. Very refined and elegant, drinking well now but certainly with time ahead. Great value.Tasted: 27 March 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 31.00 private wine shops Producer: Luigi BoscaDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
