The Sedda sa figu vineyard (Cannonau) has sandy soils that lend elegance and freshness to the wine. The winds are light in the Anfiteatro, which is composed of more clayey soils in a valley exposed to the southern sun: this adds complexity, fruit and structure.
Pressing follows the de-stemming, with light crushing of the grape. 30% of the must obtained is transferred for fermentation into buried amphorae, each 1000Hl , where maceration on the skins lasts for 20-25 days, thanks to the natural temperature control and small masses involved. The remaining 70% of the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Fermentation takes place following the BIOINTEGRALE concept, that is without the use of enzymes or selected yeasts.
Ageing & Refining
Malo-lactic fermentation and aging takes place for about 8 months, partly in second and third passage French oak barriques, and partly in stainless steel. Finally, after a minimum addition of sulfites, the wine is bottled. In order to ensure maximum respect for its natural characteristics, this wine is neither clarified nor filtered: any eventual residues are a symptom of its integrity.
Best Within 5 years of Harvest
Marked notes of small wood berries mix wisely with hints of dark chocolate and tobacco. Silky tannins and a good concentration, well balanced by a pleasant acidity, can be felt on the palate.
