The wine macerates about 20 days on the skins.

Three Senses
Orange, warm and spicy, rich and delicious, with notes of citrus peel. On the palate it is powerful, with good acidity, clinging tannins and flavors of pear, spices and dried fruit. Dry final. Excellent in combination with white lamb type fried lamb, but also snails or stuffed squid.


Gianfranco Manca is the last of the Sardinian vintners. Near to its cellar in the town of Nurri, about 80 km north of Cagliari, its numerous vineyards are planted, some on red soils, others on scists, others on soils composed of quartz and calcar. Its vines are impressive, some have over 100 years old, Gianfranco knows one by one. Its is an ancestral viticulture made of fatigue and risks, carried on with an absolute knowledge of agriculture and a conscience of territorial heritage. No addition of sulphites, no filtration, no intervention; And for this reason its wines are clean, very clean. Gianfranco is a vintner who tries to tell something different with each bottle of wine, always trying to make a unique artwork in every bottle. And everything varies according to nature !!!!
