(From 2008 Vintage) IGT (Typical Geographical Indication) red Isola dei Nuraghi Turriga estate in the countryside of Selegas-Piscina Trigus, 230 metres above sea level Medium limestone composition, some pebbles and stones, loose rocky layers Mediterranean, mild winters, limited rainfall, very hot and windy summers
Intense ruby red, lighter around the edges with age. The nose is spicy with hints of eucalyptus. Big and round with excellent structure from balanced tannins. Long and spicy finish. A powerful wine. Recommended with roasted and grilled meats, particularly roasted lamb flavored with herbs.
