Careful selection of slightly super-ripe grapes, destemming and crushing followed by a short skin maceration at controlled temperature. The vinification is conducted avoiding contact with oxygen to preserve the aromatic structure of the bunches. The fermentation takes place with a selected yeast and at controlled temperature with frequent bâtonnage in steel tanks for 40 days. At the end of the fermentation the wine is racked in French wooden barriques for a further 8 months.

"Intense ruby red with hints of garnet. On the nose it shows a deep mulberry fruit , black plum and fresh violet are met with myrtle aftertaste, a typical plant from Sardinia, tobacco and hints of smoked ground spices. A vibrancy of concentrated blackberry fruits with dark bramble and vanilla spice. The dense and refined tannins are velvety and supple, and the finish has lingering hints of minerality and mocha nuances. Serve with bone-in rib eye with a peppercorn and mushroom sauce or a slow roasted venison fillet covered in Mexican mole sauce with baked beetroot elevates the smoked spice complexity in this wine."
— Daniele Manca, Winemaker
