RÀFIA VERMENTINO DI SARDEGNA DOC
Vermentino di Sardegna DOC “Ràfia” comes from the limestone hills of the Usini area: soils well exposed to the sun and rich in precious nutrients. To produce this wine, tradition and innovation merge together: raffia is the symbol of a link between plant, land and farmer. The bunches are harvested by hand and placed in boxes, subjected to gentle pressure followed by fermentation carried out in unroasted oak barrels for about 10 days. Then we proceed to batonnage sur lies, or rather the mixing of the noble lees in the wine, in steel. The wine acquires body, volume, longevity and character. The refinement is then completed with a rest in the bottle for about 1 month, giving life to a unique wine, with a savory and intense taste.
