"Terresicci" Rosso Isola dei Nuraghi 2017 - Dolianova

A small all-Sardinian oenological curiosity. In this case, the starting grape variety is a 100% Barbera Sarda. A close relative of the Piedmont Barbera, the only real difference between the two seems to be the origin. The characteristics of the wines obtained from it, however, are quite similar. In this case, the grapes are harvested by the members in the vineyards surrounding the winery. Here the soils are variable, but what is most influential is the hot, even sub-arid climate. After the harvest, the grapes are soon brought to the cellar. Here we start with a destemming phase, followed by a maceration of about 12-14 days at a controlled temperature. After racking, the wine is then transferred into vitrified cement vats where malolactic fermentation takes place and then into barriques for a maturation period of at least 12 months. A medium-long ageing wine, this Terresicci presents itself in the glass with a beautiful intense ruby red colour with violet reflections, tending towards garnet with ageing. The nose is immediately intense, persistent and complex. Hints of currants and cherries are clearly recognisable, followed by fine spicy notes of cinnamon. In the mouth, however, it is round and sunny. The tannins are velvety and accompany an exuberant and generous structure. The finish is harmonious and consistent. Ideal for red meats, game and mature cheeses.

Founded in 1949 by thirty-five winegrowers, Cantine di Dolianova has grown and prospered over time, reaching goals that were certainly not even remotely imaginable at the time. Today there are more than three hundred members and, very importantly, many of them are now the children or grandchildren of the founding members. In a sort of generational passage, much appreciated in the wine world. Today, the Cellars can therefore count on a heritage of around 1200 hectares of their own vineyards, mostly concentrated in Parteolla, in the south of Sardinia, one of the sunniest parts of the island. Thanks to this heritage, the company's sales force is able to sell more than four million bottles a year. Numbers that, in a viticultural panorama such as that of Sardinia, make Dolianova one of the largest and most virtuous realities in the sector. The winery's production is focused (as it should be) on the island's many indigenous grape varieties. From Cannonau to Monica, Nuragus, Vermentino, Nasco, Barbera Sarda and Moscato.
