DOC CANNONAU DI SARDEGNA
Selection obtained by processing in purity Cannonau grapes of Sardinia.
VINIFICATION & AGEING
After fermentation on the skins for a period of 15/20 days, it matures in French oak tonneaux for at least 12 months, followed by a further 6 months of ageing in bottles lying down.
Luminous ruby red colour animated by evident violet notes, a prelude to the fresh scents of Mediterranean maquis, rosemary with notes of red fruit and berries, marasca cherry and myrtle accompanied by a touch of spicy notes conferred by the elevation in French oak barrels.
On the palate the warm impact is followed by a notable freshness with distinctive savoury notes and an elegant texture of tannins, which fit well together in the wine’s soft and velvety structure. Good intensity and persistence.
“Atha Ruja” goes well with semi-hard cheeses of medium intensity, tasty cold cuts and medium-structured red meat dishes, roasts and game.
