Luigi Bosca La Linda Old Vines MalbecLa Linda – Old Vines Malbec has a deep red colour with violet highlights. It has intense aromas of wild berries and fresh spices. The palate is straightforward and expressive, with ripe fruit and pleasant smoky aftertaste due to ageing in oak barrels. This juicy wine has fine tannins and a balance finish with characteristics of old vines.
The vineyard has an average age of 30 years, located in Luján de Cuyo and maipão, Mendoza at an average altitude of 960m. The grapes are handpicked and selections are in clusters. They are destemmed before fermentation is conducted in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28°C with selected yeasts. Once the fermentation is completed, part of the wine matures in American oak barrels for a period of eight months before being lightly filtered during bottling.
