Giuseppe Gabbas is one of the most renowned winemakers in Sardinia. His estate consists of 20 hectares of vines, predominantly Cannonau de Sardegna (Grenache) making up of 80% of their cultivation, alongside Vermentino and another local variety called Muristellu. The farm sits in the heart of Sardinia. The climate here is hot and dry but the cooling breezes from the surrounding sea and the proximity of the mountain ranges provide these hillside vineyards with protection and temperature control. The granite soils help to retain moisture. These special conditions not only provide a perfect micro-climate for the grapes to ripen but also they allow for minimal intervention. This wine has an elegant nose with a fragrant bouquet of fresh raspberries, geraniums and violets. Medium in body, with soft tannins and a hint of white pepper on the palate. Drink with meatballs in a tomato sauce.
