Ripe plums and blackberries is what I first get on the nose, which translates well onto the palate with a full bodied black fruit presence, spice and a slight floral character. It finishes with a firm but not overwhelming tannin structure. Interestingly, Grenache usually tends to spend time in oak, however this wine has not, with the wine maker opting for stainless steel and concrete vats for ageing.
If you want a wine that is full bodied yet elegant, fruit driven, spicy and interesting you have met your match. I hope you enjoy the wine as much as I do.
Four generations have overseen the production of wine over 120 years, which began with Vernacchia Di Oristano and was later joined by various other varietals. This winery has evolved with time, continuing to improve by adding new winemaking techniques and ideas. With an organic philosophy, the family oversees approximately 100 hectares of vines along the Sinis Peninsula, Tirso Valley and on the slopes of Mount Arci. Vineyards span many different areas with various soil types and micro climates, allowing different grapes to be grown and creating incredible individuality.
