Vernaccia di Oristano DOC Ris. 1968
Vernaccia di Oristano DOC Riserva
Absolute, unique and unrepeatable Vernaccia. It is the year that marked the last vinification of Silvio Carta, in the historic headquarters in via Dante in Baratili San Pietro. But also the year of the last harvest carried out in three moments. The first harvest, dedicated to the ripest and healthiest grapes. The second, 10\15 days after the first, reserved for the sweetest bunches, reinvigorated by a lightened vine, therefore naturally more prodigal. Finally, the third and final harvest of grapes destined for the production of San Martino wine, the lightest and most ready to drink. This was the custom for the harvest of Vernaccia grapes, until then. It was 1968.

Vernaccia di Oristano DOC Riserva 1968
The nose reveals intriguing sensations of chestnut honey and amaretto, butter, coffee and quince, marine scrub and glazed notes.
Articulated taste, moderately sweet and fresh, almost liqueur, it closes with a persistence of bitter almond.
The 1968 is not a wine to be tasted, it is a wine to be experienced.
