De Sangre Collection Malbec Valle de Uco 2018

Luigi Bosca


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 Finca Los Miradores (Villa Seca) and Finca Miralejos (Paraje 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, undergoing 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. The wine is
then filtered and bottled, and then stowed in the wine cellar for at least six months before it enters the market.
