- Wine Type
Giuseppe Gabbas is now one of the most renowned winemakers in Sardinia. His wines are best known for being true examples of traditional Sardinian styles. The estate consists of 20 hectares of vines with around 15% being Vermentino. The climate 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, so much so that even in drought they can continue to nourish the vines. These special conditions not only provide a perfect micro-climate for the grapes to ripen but also they allow for minimal intervention; there is little use of pesticides and fertilizers. This wine has an elegant nose of floral, citrus notes and almond. Smooth and well rounded with zesty acidity and lovely minerality. A nice long finish with a lingering taste almond. Drink with soft white cheeses such as Ricotta, Buffalo Mozzarella, goats cheese and Feta. Or a roast chicken.
