This wine comes from Carignano grapes from sapling grapevines and of espalier of the lower region of Sulcis. The must ferments in presence of the vines at a controlled temperature of 25 and 28° C and is submitted to periodic pumping over grape dregs in order to allow the passage of substances extracted from the must. The malolactic fermentation gives origin to a soft and smooth wine, which matures in epoxy tubs and stainless steel tanks. After undergoing a fining down process it is then bottled where it remains for a few months before being placed on the market. Its ruby red colour tends to be more of a pomegranate red, and its rich and intense bouquet brings baked prunes to mind. It has a full texture.

The producer

Founded in 1960 the cellar now has about 300 contributing partners with vineyards in the municipality of Santadi, Villaperuccio, Nuxis, Giba, Piscinas, Masainas, Sant'Anna Arresi, Perdaxius and Tratalias for a total of 500 hectares at altitudes of maximum 250 metres above sea level and descending sweetly down to the marine littoral. The climate is fairly dry in the summer period, but the marine breeze abates the temperature in the hottest months. There is rainfall during the autumn-winter period. It is perhaps for this reason that Sulcis red wines are full, rich and so generous. In this area it is possible to observe the marvellous sand, which allows for foothill cultivation and it is here that you can pick marvellous Carignano grapes of, which only the sapling without the rootstock can produce with exceptional organoleptic characteristics and superior to other grapes.

Best with
