Ca' del Bosco Corte del Lupo Rosso 2016

Ca' del Bosco Corte del Lupo Rosso is a red grape blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carménère. Meticulous attention to detail in the wine-making process is key at Ca' del Bosco. Prior to vinification the carefully selected hand-picked grapes are put through the exclusive “berry spa,” a special whirlpool-like wash for grape bunches, consisting of three soaking tanks, followed by thorough drying. Thereafter, gravity comes into play as the clusters are transported over the maceration vat, where they are de-stemmed, allowing the berries to naturally fall into vat; eliminating the need for traditional pumping, which can cause the skins to break and develop unwanted herbaceous hints. After malolactic fermentation in small oak barrels the wine is racked and assembled into different product lots. The final Corte del Lupo Rosso blend continues ageing in oak and stainless steel for approximately 21 months, followed by bottling, again by gravity. No sulphites are added at this stage, to guarantee integrity and wholesomeness. Finally, each bottle is marked with a unique code, to ensure traceability. Deep ruby ​​red in colour this wine offers inviting fruit aromas whilst the harmonious palate is beautifully balanced.
