  4. Is Solinas Isola dei Nuraghi IGT

Is Solinas is the perfect expression of this island's unspoiled landscape and exotic beauty, made from 95% Carignano and 5% Bovale Sardo grapes that come from some rare pre-phylloxera vineyards. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then refined in a combination of new and second-passage barriques and cement tanks for one year.

Tasting Notes

Ruby-red in color with violet tinges, Is Solinas shows layered aromas of ripe black cherries, smoke, earthiness, sage and Mediterranean spice. Full-bodied and expansive on the palate, with concentrated notes of black fruit and sweet spice that harmonize well into the finish.

Food Pairing

Perfect with herb roasted lamb or pecorino sardo.
