Description
 

The Sardinian vineyard 6Mura, pronounced sei mura meaning six walls, takes its name from the “Su de Is Muras” which refers to a protected area in the Inglesiente region and surrounding Giba.

6 Muras Carignano Rosso 2011 is 100% Carignano del Sulcis. The wine goes through a long maceration to bring out the unique flavors of the Carignano grape. Then it is aged for 18 months in oak and 6 months in the bottle. The result of this is a very powerful wine with a gorgeous character. Dark fruits with a long finish. this wine is like none other
This is expression of the interaction between soil and vine which gives a refined bouquet while enveloping the scent and flavour of salty winds, all softened by the “sweet roundness of the Mediterranean”. The vineyard’s 100 year old vines are located in the sandy hills of Giba. With 30 hectares under vine, 6Mura produces 100,000 bottles per year. It is one of only 10% of European wineries using Piede Franco (ungrafted vines). Rare, complex notes in the nose: plums and blueberries, sweet spices, juniper, tobacco and chocolate, Licorice, Helichrysum. The palate is rich, warm, mellow, fruity and spicy notes, with suave tannins.
