Description

Our Cagnulari, Isola dei Nuraghi IGT, is a wine obtained exclusively from Cagnulari grapes cultivated on the hills of Usini at 250 m asl. Deep ruby red in colour, with deep purple tones.

It matches well with traditional dishes, accompanying meat, side dishes and cheese; it is an excellent wine for important dishes.

It is a red wine made from Cagnulari grapes. The ruby red color and the delicate aroma of red fruit, made even more tasteful by a slight hint of oak wood, are its typical characteristics. Excellent with traditional cuisine, Cagnulari is best enjoyed with meat, side dishes and cheeses. It anticipates anything good and solemn that cheers and enhaces food.

Winemaking process and development

The grapes are harvested by hand in late September, then are processed in steel tanks with maceration in the skins for about 15 days at a temperature of 22-24°C. During fermentation and extraction, frequent brief pumping over is performed to extract colour and tannin. Once fermentation has been completed, the wine is transferred to steel vats where it is kept for about 12/14 months. Then comes a short period of development in the bottle.

Tasting notes

Intense ruby red colour with dark purple tinges. On the nose, it has a great impact with notes of spices and of red and black wild berries, in excellent balance with light vanilla and tobacco notes, softened by a light overtone of oak wood. In the mouth, intense, lingering and complex, with warm and mellow notes, intensely flavoured, introducing a wine with a strongly mineral character.

Food matches

Superbly matched with traditional cuisine, it goes well with spit-roasted and grilled meat, game, mature cheese and cured meats.

Serving
