Process

Winemaking and context

The grapes for Luigi Bosca ∙ Malbec D.O.C are harvested manually. When they arrive at the winery, a selection of bunches is carried out, then they go on to destemming and later to a selection of grains. The must is cold macerated between three and five days at a temperature of 10 ° C to 15 ° C. It is then fermented with selected yeasts in small capacity stainless steel tanks. During the fermentation-maceration, extraction works such as délestages and tamping are carried out, and when the process is finished, the wine goes to new oak barrels where it undergoes its malolactic fermentation and is aged for 12 to 14 months. Finished
aging, stabilized, filtered and bottled. Before going on the market, the bottles are stored in the cellar for at least 6 months.
