Making wine for us is more than just a business.
It is a way to give honour and continue the job our parents started in 1976, when they decided to plant here in Oliena, in the fields of Orbuddai the first vineyards of Cannonau. We also want to preserve the tradition of our region that has in wine one of its most authentic cultural expressions.
“… Do you not know the Nepenthes of Oliena not even by fame?
Ouch lasso! I am sure that, if you took a sip, you would never want to leave the shadow of the white cliffs again … “
Gabriele D’Annunzio Italian poet
and desire to dare
In the homeland of Cannonau we cannot but pay tribute to this wonderful variety , making wines that embody the tradition of our territory.
With the awareness of the quality and versatility of this grapes, we wanted to bring a touch of innovation that has allowed us to produce an amazing Cannonau vinified in white and an elegant sparkling brut rosé obtained from the same variety.
Our goal is to make wines that represent our tradition and that can be remembered for their quality and agreeability.
In the shadow of
Divided between a unique and unspoiled environment and a winemaking tradition that has its roots over the centuries.
Our winery is situated in a unique and impressive natural setting at the feet of mountain Corrasi , a dolomite limestone massive, symbol of Oliena and highest peak of the Supramonte, a few kilometers away- in linear distance- from the Gulf of Orosei and its crystal blue sea on the eastern coast of Sardinia.
Amongst holm oaks and junipers, covered with Mediterranean scrub and medicinal herbs , the Supramonte of Oliena has been defined as an actual botanic garden where about 650 species have been identified so far and where it is still possible to meet the golden eagle, the goshawk and the peregrine falcon.
In this charming landscape we grow our vines -the oldest ones were planted more than 40 years ago, covering a total of 30 hectares.
Decomposed granite soils with limestone components confer wines great minerality and freshness, a sunny and cool weather with temperature swings from daytime warmth provide the ideal conditions for the concentration of terpenes in the grapes, anticipating the aromas found in the glass and giving our grapes unique characteristics.
The growing system applied to oldest vines follows the traditional sapling method with very low yields that concentrate in the berries all the strength and the perfumes of this land.
