Corbesa Vernaccia Valle de Tirso
GRAPE VARIETY Pure Vernaccia
Two hectare vineyards, trained in espalier with Guyot pruning, on the typical alluvial sandy-clayey soil of Sinis.
The grapes, harvested by hand, are subjected to a brief 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 to alcoholic fermentation in concrete containers. The maturation takes place partly in concrete, 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.
Perfume: notes of yellow flowers, white pulp fruit and ripe fruit, dried fruit and sensations of Mediterranean scrub.
Taste: fresh and savory, simultaneously balanced between heat 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 pairing it with typical traditional Sardinian dishes such as burrida alla Cagliaritana, a dish based on sea dog.
