Entemari Isola dei Nuraghi IGT

    • Description :

      Entemari means sea breeze in Sardinian and it is the sea breeze and salt that are the distinguishing features of many whites from Pala. Entemari is the Sardinian white with the highest ageing potential and that is why the production is limited and occurs only in the best vintages. The grapes are pressed softly and left to macerate with the addition of selected yeasts for a few hours. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and 225l French oak barrels (barriques). At the end of fermentation the wine undergoes a light clarification and is refined in stainless steel for several months. It then rests in bottle for a few additional months.
