It is a wine that comes from vines that give concentrated, rich and straightforward grapes. It is articulate and complex, but also creamy and elegant.
The family Sedilesu
A family winery in the heart of Sardinia, in Barbagia, which has more than thirty years of history. Currently owning to about 15 hectares in the countryside of Mamoiada, 650 meters above sea level.
Mamoiada experiences a mild Mediterranean climate with hot dry summers and some rainfall and snow in the winter. During the growing season prior to harvest, the region has a significant diurnal temperature swing which helps to preserve acidity, enhance sugars, and improve grape phenolics. The soils of Mamoiada are sandy and mainly composed of decayed granite with small amounts of clay and humus.
The family grows mainly the Sardinian indigenous grape Cannonau and managed to save from extinction the white local grape called "Granazza". All the vines reach a very high average age, with a third of the vines being around fifty years old and some even the century of age.
Here the words from Giuseppe: "In full respect of biodiversity, environmental balance and the ecosystem, we get to harvest grapes that are pure, rich and concentrated in all their components. Bunches that are transformed in the cellar by pursuing a precise production philosophy: respect for the typicality of the varietal and the peculiarities of the territory, severe and scrupulous attention paid to each working step."
With Giuseppe Sedilesu and his wife Grazia now over eighty years old, the winery is led by their son Salvatore and his family. Always focusing on high quality products, the main objective remains the same, so that in each label can give credit to the territory, the main inspirer of unique and inimitable wines.
