The names of the wines are chosen in a way that recalls how we do with the names of our children. It happens that mom and dad want to respect the most ancestral family traditions, and name their kids as a relative. Others choose a name to shock and amaze, some parents desire to give their kid a weird name having a deep and complicate meaning. Without forgetting who gives his baby the name of a celebrity.
That’s what happens, with the necessary distinctions, when producers have to choose the name of one of their new wines.
On the contrary, Bosca does not necessarily follow this path, maybe just because it’s against the tide or maybe because Bosca’s tradition is really long and full of nice stories. That’s why it often happens that it is the wine itself that chooses its name, or that it suggests the immediate solution. In short, it is not only a question of specification or processing, but also of hints, of flavor, of origin: the new Bosca Traditional Method spumante, intended for large-scale distribution, simply has the name of the land it originates from: Alta Langa. Could it be otherwise?
COMPOSITION OF THE CUVÉE: Chardonnay and/or Pinot nero, Brut
PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE: The grapes are harvested in boxes between August and the beginning of September. The first fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature with selected yeasts. The tirage is made in the spring following the harvest to proceed with the second fermentation in the bottle. The bottles are then placed in stacks in our UNESCO World Heritage Cellars for the second fermentation and following at least 30 months ageing. Subsequently, we carry out the remuage and when completed we go on with the dégorgement à la glace with the addition of the liqueur d’expédition.
COLOUR: yellow with golden hues and fine perlage with delicate crown
