Technical sheet 

VARIETIES: The contributors to this blend are Sardinia’s most celebrated red-skinned variety, Cannonau, and that most international of varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon.

PRODUCTION AREA: The south-east quadrant of Tenute Sella&Mosca, whose place name “Tanca Farra” is a reminder that Catalans once grew grapes here. The iron-rich red clay terrain, exposed to sun and wind, lends a special swagger to the strong character of the grapes that have long grown in the area.

HARVEST PERIOD: Late September for the Cannonau and the first ten days of October for the Cabernet Sauvignon, when the grapes present extreme physiological ripeness.

WINEMAKING: After crushing, the grapes undergo pre-fermentation skin contact for one or two days at a temperature of 22-28°C. The two varieties are brought together only towards the end of the fermentation process to complete the transformation of must into wine and obtain a blend of the desired harmony.

APPEARANCE: Ruby red with flashes of garnet.

NOSE: Broad, estery and assertive with a characteristic slightly herbaceous note prevailing and attractive tarry sensations.

PALATE: Full-bodied, dry and nicely balanced, flaunting intrinsic elegance and structure as the grassiness of the Cabernet melds with a restrained oak-derived after-aroma.

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 13% vol.

ACIDITY LEVEL: 5,5 g/l. The softness of the palate comes from successful malolactic fermentation.

AGEING: initially in small oak barrels and then in mediumsized oak casks at a temperature of 15°C, followed by at least six months in bottle.

SERVE: At a temperature of 18°C, uncorking the bottle a few hours before serving, or better still decant.

FOOD MATCHINGS: A full-bodied, long-aged wine that superbly partners roasts, red meats, game and rich sauces from all culinary traditions. Excellent at the end of the meal with a wide range of cheeses, especially if hard-paste and moderately mature.
