‘Bossa’, the affectionate nickname that Vittorio De Bortoli bestowed on his childhood sweetheart, Giuseppina, identifies the authentically Australian story of a modern migrant woman. La Bossa wines pay homage to Giuseppina’s inspiring traits. They are wines that are proud and authentic, but with the kind of contemporary style and vibrancy that made Giuseppina one of a kind.
Rich and generous palate, with cherry fruit and vanilla bean oak flavours.

"A medium to light-bodied soft-drinking merlot from the Riverina. Plenty of fruitcake aromas with a touch of vanillin oak. The soft tannin light oak influence works well with the soft lush fruit. Great all-purpose current drinking."
Rating 86 - Ray Jordan, West Australian(MAY/2012)
"Looking for an affordable pizza or pasta wine? This should fit the bill nicely. The new La Bossa range from De Bortoli celebrates Giuseppina De Bortoli, the wife of company founder Vittorio De Bortoli, whose nickname was 'Bossa'. This wine is a lot better than most Australian merlots costing twice the price. It has plenty of flavour generosity, well integrated oak and finishes soft and smooth. Impressive value."
