About the Vineyard

The vineyard is very close to the sea side, in the south of Sardinia. Soils in the vineyard are a combination of sand and clay. There is no irrigation, but humidity from the sea keeps the vineyard hydrated. The strong sea breeze keeps the air circulating throughout the grapes.

Fermentation and maceration occur at a controlled temperature, for an average period of 12-15 days. The wine is then transferred to cement tanks, where malolactic fermentation occurs.
