Notes from the Winemaker:
Color: intense ruby red, tending to garnet.
Nose: Mediterranean notes, complex, blueberry and ripe-blackberry aromas, spices tending sweet, tobacco and chocolate.
Palate: warm, soft, sweet tannins of rare intensity

Vinication and development:
The well ripe grapes, after being crushed and de-stalked to form the must, ferment for 12-14 days in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature (22 – 24 C.); during this period the must is often stirred in order to enable complete diffusion of the tannins and polyphenols contained in the skins. The early and spontaneous malolactic fermentation makes possible to transfer the wine into 2nd passage French-oak barrels since December. The maturation process in barrels lasts about 6 months, which is then followed by further 6 months ageing in bottle.

Grape varieties: 90% Cannonau and 10% Carignano


Ratings and Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:
" A very attractive Sardinian red that combines great ripe plums with a hot, dry-earth character and has a very food-friendly balance of ripeness and soft tannins. Drink now with autumn or winter dishes." - (13 Aug, 2018)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This round, medium-bodied red is well-knit and balanced, with supple layers of pureed black cherry, plum tart and spiced orange flavors, framed by creamy tannins. Elegant. Drink now through 2024. 2,500 cases made, 300 cases imported." — AN (Web Only - 2019)
