Le Anfore Biointegral Cannonau di Sardegna 2018
The Le Anfore selection follows the BioIntegral method, an ethical agriculture protocol born from the thought of Stefano Casadei, Elena's father. Bio-integral means protecting the environment, working in balance between the recovery of ancient agronomic methods and modern scientific knowledge. This implies the recovery of ancient practices, such as winemaking and aging in amphora: a method in line with the approach of respect for the environment and for the wines that the winery produces. The amphora, the use of which has its roots in antiquity, contributes in a fundamental way to the characterization of wines, amplifying the peculiarities of each terroir, variety and vintage.
