VINIFICATION AND AGING
The grapes are soft-pressed and placed in temperature-controlled steel tanks to preserve their fragrance and aroma. The wine is then left in contact with its lees for a few months before being bottled. Steel tanks for 4-6 months.
TASTING NOTES
Bright straw yellow with green and gold reflections. Fresh and pleasant on the nose; a refreshing palate with an intriguing minerality.

This celebrated winery takes its name from the medieval town of Santadi, in the Sulcis peninsula of southwest Sardinia – a landscape of dramatic contrasts and beauty where the dazzling white sand dunes of Porto Pino compete only with the Pantaleo forest and its centuries-old oak trees, cork trees, holly oaks and deer.

From a blend of two white native grapes, Vermentino and Nuragus, this beautiful straw yellow with green and golden reflections, with intriguing freshness, and mineral notes on the nose and palate.
