This wine is made mainly from Nebbiolo grapes cultivated in the favorable habitat of Sardinia. A small amount of local red grapes are also used. It has a beautifully clear ruby colour. The wine has a strong, clean and long-lasting aroma with a nuance of red fruit, ripe blackberries and cherries in particular. It tastes dry, full and structured with an extraordinary balance between its mellowness, its acidity and its tannins.

The producer

There has been a cockerel on the label of Visconti's wines since 1956. Although these wines come from Pisa, the company is run by the same people who used to manage Giudicato di Gallura vineyards and offers an indication of the extent to which the wines of the Cantina di Gallura are valued. The company, which is located at the foot of Mount Limbara, gathers grapes that are exclusively Gallurese in origin and has produced a good series of D.O.C. wines from the Vermentino species of grapevine, which have recently earned the classification D.O.C.G, the maximum indication of quality. This company is without a doubt one of the best wine-makers in Sardinia.

Best with

Excellent with flavorsome dishes such as mushroom risotto, game ragù, boiled and grilled meats as long as they are not too fatty, and medium-mature cheeses.

How to serve it

It is recommended to open the bottle half an hour before serving. The wine should be served at 16-18 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

Although this isn't essentially a wine that should be aged for very long, if it is conserved well it will hold on to its characteristics for a few years. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
