Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)

While most of Sardinia's 15 IGT titles cover specific valleys and traditional wine-growing areas, Isola dei Nuraghi covers the entire Sardegna administrative region. This includes not just the main island but also the smaller islands that lie off the Sardinian coast. This intriguing wine has an outstanding quality, with the distinguished character obtained from a skilled blending of Nieddera (85%) with other indigenous varieties such as Caddiu, an extremely crisp and fragrant variety. Barrile is initially refined in barriques for 10-12 months, and later in bottles for at least 6 months. The bouquet is intense and fragrant with notes of licorice, fresh herbs and currants. The taste is full, soft and suavely spicy from the wood, balanced by hints of dried dark fruits with medium tannins and a long peppery finish with notes of nutmeg and spices. Pair this chameleonic wine with beef, venison, pasta, or lamb.
