Rich, ripe nose, almost perfumed wine with a delicious creamy character on the palate and bags of soft ripe blackcurrant fruit. The acidity is all there, balanced against soft, full tannins and there is great structure and mouthfeel. Succulent, round and complex.
Carignano del Sulcis Riserva, Rocca Rubia
CLASSIFICATION: Carignano del Sulcis DOC Reserve.
PLACE OF ORIGIN: Erect shrub cultivation, ungrafted rootstock (Latin vineyard), near the coast in the lower Sulcis.
SOIL COMPOSITION: Sandy and clayey soils, poor in organic matter.
GRAPE VARIETIES: Carignano 100%.
CLIMATE: Hot and dry summers, mild winters.
HARVESTING: By hand, starting in late September and ending around mid October.
VINICATION AND DEVELOPMENT: After stemming and crushing, the grapes are fermented and macerated for 12-14 days in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 25-28 °C. During this period, the must is frequently pumped up, thus fully absorbing the noble tannins typical of bush-grown carignano. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to small, fine grained 1st and 2nd-passage French oak casks for 10-12 months, to further develop its biochemical and chemical-physical properties, aroma and taste. Further aging in the bottle for several months enables early bouquet development.
TASTING NOTES: Colour: Deep, almost solid ruby red. Nose: Intense fruity notes of blackberry, blueberry, vanilla, myrtle, leather and liquorice. Palate: Big and velvety, great structure and long aromatic finish, a full-bodied wine.
STORAGE: Constant temperature 17 °C, humidity 75-80%, away from light, horizontal bottle.
SERVING: Very large goblet with medium-wide rim, serving temperature 18 °C.
MATCHINGS: It matches red meats, wild boar, roast suckling pig and mature Pecorino cheese.
