Luigi Bosca · Rosé
Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir
Luigi Bosca Rosé is a pale and bright wine with copper reflections. It has vibrant aromas, with white fruit, floral and spicy notes. It is vivacious and fresh in the mouth, and clean and gentle in the palate. Voluptuous, with sharp textures and a highly fruity expression. Well-bodied, with a persistent, fat finish with jam hints, it is an innovative and original rosé conceived in the vineyard.

These two varieties are hand harvested at the right ripeness stage and during the early hours of the morning. Selection of clusters and destemming. Then, the berries go to a pneumatic press, where they are crushed in two different ways, depending on the variety: the Pinot Gris, or grauburgunder, undergoes between six and eight hours of crushing, while the Pinot Noir is left three hours. After that, the berries are gently pressed. The resulting must is statically decanted at 7°C during 48 hours. Then it is carefully racked and fermented for 15 days, at 14°-16°C, with selected yeasts. It is stabilized and lightly filtered to be subsequently bottled.
