The Arizu family of Bodega Luigi Bosca have been making wine in Mendoza since 1901. Alberto Arizu Jr now holds the reins and he is celebrated as one of Argentina’s most respected wine figures.
In the vineyard, the viticultural team apply biodynamic principles, although they do not hold certification. All of the grapes are hand-picked despite the scale of this 700 hectare estate.
The Cabernet Franc (or Cabernet Bouchet, as they prefer to call it) is fermented in small stainless steel tanks, then aged for 10 months in oak barrels and cellared for at least six months before release. Red cherry fruit with hits of spice and fine tannins.
