Classification: Vernaccia di Sardegna D.O.C. Riserva
Alcohol content: 16.5% Vol.
Bottle size: 75 cl.
Soil: light clay of alluvial origin.
Farming system: espalier.
Harvesting period: from the second week of September to the first week of October.
Type of harvesting: by hand in small boxes.
Vinification: the thin skin that can tear easily makes the vinification particularly delicate and difficult; compared to regular oenological practices, however, the unusual stage is the ageing phase. Ageing takes place in chestnut wood barrels placed in highly ventilated cellars that follow seasonal climate changes with temperature leaps. After five to six years of ageing, the wine reaches the following aspect: an amber yellow colour, an alcoholic scent with tones of almond flours, a warm taste with an after-taste of bitter almonds.
Refinement: in small chestnut tree barrels with a capacity of 300-600 litres for about 10 years. The barrels are not completely filled to allow the development of the characteristic layer of "flor" raising agents that generate the unmistakable sensors of Vernaccia di Oristano.
Bouquet and taste:with an aroma that recalls almond flours, this wine has a soft taste with a slightly bitter after-taste. Superb as meditation wine, it is also perfect as an aperitif or dessert wine.
Serving temperature: 10°C - 12°C.
