  4. Is Solinas Isola dei Nuraghi IGT

Is Solinas is the perfect expression of this island's unspoiled landscape and exotic beauty as the wine is made from some rare old vine Carignano and Bovale Sardo plants. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then refined in a combination of new and second-passage barriques to add a little complexity to the wine without covering up the grapes' natural effusiveness.

Tasting Notes

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

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with spaghetti and meatballs, Bolognese sauces, dolmadakia, and shepherd's pie.
