Isola dei Nuraghi Carignano I.G.T.
The vineyards are located in Sulcis, the most suitable area for this vine, cultivated on sapling sandy soils.
The average age of the vines is 70 years, with a planting density of around 10,000 vines per hectare. The very low yield per hectare guarantees a high quality of the bunches, which are harvested in the second half of September, once they have reached perfect ripeness.
This is followed by fermentation in steel at a controlled temperature for 10 days and a minimum refinement of 8 months in 750 liter French oak barrels before bottling. It rests at least 2 months in the bottle.
