Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi IGT
Origins: Red wine from Carignano, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes vinified individually from spurred cordon vines cultivated in Basso Sulcis region.
Grapes: 60% Carignano - 10% Syrah - 10% Cabernet Sauvignon - 10% Cabernet F 10% Merlot
Harvest: In a normal year the grapes are harvested between the second half of September and the middle of October.
Vinification: The must is fermented with the skins at a temperature of between 25 and 30C. It is periodically pumped over to facilitate the solubilization of the compounds present in the grapes. Malolactic fermentation confers roundness to the wine, which is then aged in French oak barrels(used) for approximately. 12 months.
Tasting notes: Dark-berry, lavender and black-tea aromas follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. A juicy and deep wine. Very pretty and distinctive
Pairings: Pair with meat sauces pasta and roasted and grilled meats
