Description

Luigi Bosca Pinot Noir 2020

Luigi Bosca Pinot Noir has a bright ruby colour. Delicate bouquet of red fruits and vanilla waft gently from the glass. Lively, fresh and fine-textured mouthfeel. Medium bodied and dry on the palate with a balanced acidity and velvety tannins. Complex yet straightforward character with a cherry, strawberry and vanilla spice flavour profile. Closes in a long finely integrated oak finish.

100% Pinot Noir from vines over 45-years-old. These vines grow in Luigi Bosca's vineyards in the Luján de Cuyo and Maipú regions. The vineyards have sandy loam and limestone soils that are alluvial in origin. 1% west-east and 1% south-north slope.

The grapes go through manual harvesting, bunch selection, destemming and manual grain selection. Fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 28°C with select yeasts. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine ages in part new French oak barrels and part barrels that have been used for 12 months.
