Carignano Del Sulcis Roussou Tanca Gioia 2021
Roussou was the first wine of Tanca Gioia, made purely from a selection of vineyards in the most vocated areas of Carignano, the vine which is one of the symbols of the island. Production is very limited every year, it is worked with a deep respect for the grapes and the land that brings in a balanced and elegant red wine. Ready to drink, but if you have the patience to wait for it, try it even six years after harvest.
Embracing and complex, it remembers a myrtle undergrowth. Spicy and just tannic, it accompanies all the traditional tuna dishes of Sardinia. Ideal also with red meat and mushrooms.
Tanca Gioia Carloforte srl Soc. Agr. - Carloforte
U-Tabarka is a project born during a sailboat by a group of friends who have abandoned the comforts to devote themselves to the love for the earth. The name is a tribute to the Tunisian island, once under Genoese control, from which many of the fishermen come when they were forced to leave it. The farm has about 10 hectares of vineyards on the island of S.Pietro, Sardinia. Of volcanic origin and under steady winds, ranging from light breeze to strong maestral, the island is rich in completely natural areas that are now a must stop for many species of migratory birds, including pink flamingos. The vineyards base their roots on sandy and dry soils, which allows the use of ungrafted grapes for extreme quality. Marine wind and sandy soil give a character with steady minerality and sapidity. Vineyard policy is neat, minimizing human intervention, using traditional treatments and allowing irrigation only when strictly necessary. Each vintage is the fruit of the sun, the wind and the rain that the plants have experienced and valued. Following this philosophy is also the choice to plant only native vines such as Carignano del Sulcis, Small Bovale, Aromatic Nasco, Calasetta Moscato and Vermentino di Sardegna. Each variety is thought and cultivated as a unique fruit.
