IGT ISOLA DEI NURAGHI
High Selection of the main native vines of Sardinia cultivated in our own vineyards: Cannonau of Sardinia, Carignano and Muristellu (an ancient Sardinian vine).
VINIFICATION & AGEING
The blend enhances the aromatic profile of the grapes, giving the wine a marked complexity. After a slow fermentation on the skins, carried out in small steel containers for a period of about 20 days, it is aged in French oak barriques for a period of 3 years followed by an important ageing in bottle lying down for at least 1 year (necessary to express its ample and intense bouquet of aromas).
Intense and bright ruby red colour, with evident violet tones.
To the nose it offers notes of red fruits, marasca cherry and cherry, revealing hints of sweet tobacco and wild liquorice. On the palate it is ample, warm, savoury, with a rich texture of dense and soft tannins that make it particularly elegant.
An unfiltered wine with an important structure, it goes well with the most exclusive and refined dishes based on game, succulent red meats and mature cheeses of great structure and flavour.
