A wine of an intense ruby red and brilliant chromatic charge, with strong violet tints. Its aromatic sensations are dense, wide and continuous with traces of red fruit. The flavor is powerful, concentrated, of great substance and good structure, hot and lush with hints of flowering vine. The wine has a notable roundness, an organoleptic character of great importance, without edges. Made from Cagnulari grapes, an autochthonous vine in the area of Alghero. The must sits for 8-12 days together with the skins and selected yeast; its character is completed by a refinement of about 10 months in stainless steel tanks and after the bottling process this continues in the bottle. Immediate and pleasant to drink, the Graffiante rosso gets gradually better with age. Best paired with first courses of strong taste, game, roasts and pot roasts, old and spicy cheese. To be served at 18°, letting the wine breathe in a carafe for 30 minutes before pouring.
