Luigi Bosca is the pioneer winery in elaborating a Malbec under the Denomination of Origin Luján de Cuyo. This is the reason why it is a wine which seeks the ultimate expression of the terroir by harvesting its grape in its right level of ripeness and looking after every detail of the making. The 2015 harvest brought various climatic challenges. The final results showed high-quality, well-concentrated wines of great ripeness.
The grapes are hand-picked in boxes from 18 to 20 kilograms, clusters are selected, then they are destemmed and after that the best grains are chosen. The must is macerated in cold for 5 to 7 days at a temperature from 10°C to 15°C. Then it is fermented with selected yeast in stainless steel tanks with a capacity of 15,000 liters, with extraction works such as delestage and pressings. Once fermentation is finished, the wine is aged in new French oak barrels in which malolactic conversion takes place and it is matured for 14 months. Once the ageing is finished, the wine is stabilized, filtered and bottled. It is stored in the winery for at least 18 months before market release.
Recommended food pairing includes game meat with spices, roast lamb, and pasta with intense sauces.
