Marchese di Villamarina
Alghero D.O.C.

Deep garnet, with a cherry, pepper, tobacco and coffee nose. Produced only in top vintages, the character of the Cabernet takes on a distinctly Mediterranean slant, from the breadth and intensity of its aromas to the warmth and fullness of the highly complex palate.

Production Area
From the Marchese di Villamarina single vineyard on the Sella & Mosca estate. Vines were initially planted in this vineyard in the late 1950s. Replanting is being conducted in gradual stages, so as to maintain the overall longevity of these vines. The soil is rich in iron, clay and sand from the pre-historic era.

Grape Varieties
100% Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes are harvested manually and mechanically in late Autumn and fermented for two weeks in stainless steel vats at 68 to 82°F. Aging: The wine is matured 18 months in small French oak casks, followed by a further 12 months in large oak barrels. After bottling, it is aged an additional 18 months prior to release.
