Luigi Bosca De Sangre Edicion Limitada Malbec 2017Luigi Bosca's De Sangre, which means "of blood", is a pure and transparent expression of the terroir in one of Mendoza's most prestigious vineyards.
De Sangre Edicion Limitada Malbec is bright red with dark reflections. Wet stone and chalky minerals open the nose, with notes of small red berry fruits soon following. The medium-bodied palate is vertical, fresh, dry, has a balanced acidity and gentle tannins. Strong fruit-forward character with a clean and vivid expression of strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruits with hints of chocolate and gentle sweet oak spices. Closes in a persistent and round finish.
100% Malbec. The fruit for this wine comes from 20-year-old vines in the Finca Miralejos vineyard, which has an altitude of 1,120 metres. The stony and calcareous soil of this terroir finds expression in this wine’s verticality and minerality.
The grapes go through hand-picking, selection in clusters and destemming. Cold maceration of the grape juice between 8–10°C for 5–7 days. Following this is fermentation in small stainless steel tanks, where the wine goes through various extractions such as plunging and délestage. After fermentation, the wine ages in oak barrels for 12 months. Filtering before bottling, the wines then stow away for at least six months before entering the market.
Ageing potential: 10 years
