Luigi Bosca is one of the top Argentinian vineyards and is still run by the third and fourth generation of the founding family. They have some of the finest vineyard plots in Argentina, and use modern techniques as well as traditional respect for the land. The wine is rich, but well structured, with bursting blackberry fruit and rounded tannins.

Tormentoso was the first name given to the Cape of Good Hope by the Portuguese. This struggle is reflected in this wine, where they use no irrigation and the vines are often under a lot of stress.
