Vernaccia Corbesa Tirso Valley
The name Corbesa is a tribute to an ancient variety of Vernaccia, still cultivated by some of the winery's contributors. The peculiarity lies in its labels: there are six different and each represents one of the canvases that the Oristano painter Carlo Contini painted for the cellar. The canvases illustrate themes related to Vernaccia di Oristano: The Phoenician cellar, The banquet in the Roman Tharros, The promulgation of the Carta de Logu, The embarkation of Vernaccia for Spain, Santa Giustina.
GRAPES Vernaccia in purity
ALCOHOL CONTENT 14 %
Vineyards of two hectares, trained in espalier with guyot pruning, on the typical sandy-clayey soil of the Sinis, of an alluvial nature.
PROCESSING AND AGING
The grapes, harvested by hand, are subjected to a short maceration of the skins in the must. This process allows the passage of aromatic substances from the pomace to the juice. After racking, the free-run must is sent for alcoholic fermentation in concrete containers. The maturation takes place partly in cement, in contact with its own yeasts for 24 months, and partly in barrels, for longer times, in contact with the flor yeasts. At the end of maturation, the masses are combined and then bottled.
Color: golden yellow.
Bouquet: notes of yellow flowers, white pulp fruit and ripe fruit, dried fruit and sensations of Mediterranean scrub.
Taste: fresh and savory, at the same time balanced between warmth and softness. Smooth and full-bodied sip, intense and persistent aromas.
Corbesa is a perfect Vernaccia to be served as an aperitif and to accompany blue cheeses. At the table we recommend combining it with the typical dishes of the Sardinian tradition such as the burrida alla Cagliaritana, a dish based on catfish.
