Luigi Bosca Icono 2015 is the winery’s most important wine. A bright and intense ruby red wine with balanced and elegant aromas, whose expression is subtle and complex at the same time. Its delicate notes are reminiscent of spices and wild fruits and herbs. It is straightforward and clean in the mouth, with fine textures and a fruity character perfectly integrated to its ageing notes

Fresh, smooth, harmonic and clear in the palate, with a persistent finish during which its great ageing potential can be perceived. A trueicon of the family; a modern blend made out of the best components and the best intentions.

AGEING POTENTIAL: 25 years.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: Between 15°C and 18°C (59 to 64 °F).

PAIRING: A great wine to enjoy with special dishes, such as Segovian style suckling pig or venison bourguignon with creamy white ground maize.

BLEND: Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.

VINEYARDS: The parcel 41 (Malbec) and the 51 (Cabernet Sauvignon) of Finca Los Nobles.

WINEMAKING: The grapes are harvested during the morning in 18 to 20 kilograms boxes so the fruit arrives into the winery at a low temperature. The Malbec is harvested during the last week of March, and the Cabernet Sauvignon, the first and second weeks of April. Both varieties are vinified separately with identical making: the whole grains (no breaks) are cold-macerated for five days to get the greatest potential of the fruit, after which the yeasts specially selected for each variety are added. Classic fermentation occurs in small stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (between 25°C and 28°C), with four pumpings and two daily delestages, so there is a long maceration where the liquid is in contact with the skin for approximately 25 days. The must is moved to new French oak barrels when it has around 80 grams of sugar per liter pending fermentation. This way, a natural micro-oxygenation through the pores of the wood and the contribution of the tannins achieved promote the expression of vegetable flavors and help to fix the color. Once the alcoholic fermentation finishes in the oaks, the malolactic fermentation starts spontaneously and the wine stays on its lees for a total of six months. The oenology team makes different blends and the three best are sent to new French oaks where they stay for other 12 months. In September, a year and a half after the harvest, the different blends are evaluated in a blind tasting and the best is chosen for Icono.

APPELLATIONS: Mendoza, Argentina.

Origins

In 1890 Leoncio Arizu arrived in Argentina from Spain and settled in Mendoza. As soon as he discovered Luján de Cuyo, he marveled at this place, which is reminiscent to his native homeland, and began planting vineyards with European vines. Over 120 years after its establishment, Bodega Luigi Bosca remains under the care of its founding family with values rooted in determination to reach excellence, admiration and respect towards nature and a trascendent vision transferred from generation to generation.
