Yield per hectare

3.200 kg/ha, 20 hl/ha.

Winemaking

The grape harvesting is done in the morning so as to get into the winery with the fruit at a low temperature, and it is done in boxes of 18 to 20 kilograms The Malbec is harvested during the last week of March, and the Cabernet Sauvignon, the first and second weeks of April. Both varieties are vinified separately with identical ranking

Ageing in barrels

Luigi Bosca Icono has a total of 18 months of ageing in barrels. First, each variety is aged separately in new oak barrels of the Allier forests for six months. Once the blend is done, it is aged for other 12 months in new French oak barrels. Then it is bottled without filtering.

Comments by the winemaker

The 2010 harvest was well balanced, with excellent grain maturity and firm tannins. Malbec contributes red fruit, spices and licorice, good acidity, and round and sweet tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon contributes truffles, dry fruit and minerality, in addition to significant and more rustic tannins, and longevity. The final result is a blend of great harmony, good aromatic expression and elegance.
