Cavaliere Sardo Bovale Riserva Magnum 2021
Vineyards owned by the winery, in the Terralba plains. The soils are sandy-clayey, with good structure and depth.
The harvest is manual and takes place between the last ten days of September and the first ten days of October. The vinification involves a fermentative maceration of approximately 15 days at a temperature of 26-28°C. Repeated pumping over and délestage ensure good extraction of the aromatic and coloring components. After fermentation and a short stay in steel, it spends about 12 months in French oak barriques. It then refines for another 8 months in steel and 40 days in the bottle.
Color: dark and intense purplish red.
Fragrance: ripe red fruits, among which cherry and blackberry stand out. Delicate balsamic and Mediterranean scrub nuances.
Taste: in the mouth it reveals the character of the structured wine which is with evident but velvety and complex tannins.
Ideal to accompany dishes with intense and spicy flavors typical of Mediterranean cuisine. Semolina pastas seasoned with pork and sheep meat, ravioli filled with tasty cheeses and game-based risottos. It is enhanced in the company of mature sheep's and cow's cheeses.
