Luigi Bosca - De Sangre Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
These wines are the result of finding the best terroirs with extraordinary components.
The new De Sangre collection is a range of super-premium wines, each crafted from single vineyards. These wines are from the best soils of selected parcels in Mendoza, chosen for their specific attributes and desired wine profile. De Sangre, meaning “Of Blood”, is the name the winery has given to those outstanding blends as a tribute to sharing special wines only with family and special friends
Terroir:Made from grapes grown in select plots of vineyards located in Agrelo, Gualtallary and Altamira.
Vinification: The grapes are manually harvested in 18 to 20-kilogram boxes, followed by the bunch selection and stalking processes, and, subsequently, berry selection. The grape juice is cold macerated at a temperature ranging between 8 and 10 °C for five to seven days. After that, it is fermented in small stainless steel tanks, under-going various extractions, such as plunging and rack and return (délestage). Once maceration is completed, wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels, where it goes through malolactic fermentation. After the final blend is made, the wine is filtered and bottled, and then stowed in the wine cellar for at least six months before it enters the market.
Additional Details edit
This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from select estate plots in Lujan de Cuyo and Uco Valley. The resulting balance between these two terroirs gives rise to an elegant, compact, and full-bodied wine. Deep ruby-colored, stands out for its aromas of excellent varietal typicity. Black fruit and peppery notes are perfectly balanced with roasted hues from its barrel aging. Compact, tense, markedly structured, and full-bodied on the palate, with fine and ripe tannins, and balanced acidity providing great smoothness and a persistent elegant finish.
PAIRING: Game meats of intense flavor such as deer or wild boar marinated in herbs, served with roasted vegetables.
