Only Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, harvested from vines planted on iron-rich clay and sandy soils in the Alghero region are used to make this impressively rich, yet mellow red with an intense and fragrant nose of red-fruits, blackcurrant and cedar. Classic mature Cabernet Sauvignon flavours are balanced by notes of vanilla-spice on the long and complex finish.
Grapes are harvested at the coolest time of day, with the shortest possible interval of time between picking and delivery to the winery. Each variety is subject to a gentle crush, and a brief cold maceration, to enhance the extraction of flavor. After settling and clarification the musts are fermented at a low temperature for about 20 days in French oak and acacia wood barriques. The two varieties are then blended and aged a further four months. Careful attention is paid to the avoidance of malolactic fermentation.
This unique wine invites innovative pairings, including flavorful appetizers and fish dishes. A fascinating and intriguing by-the-glass pour.
