The Tanca Farrà Alghero DOC from Sella & Mosca appears in the glass in an intense ruby red with garnet reflections and reveals its sweeping bouquet with aromas of black currants, cassis, dried plums and some elderberry with discreet grassy notes.
On the palate, this cuvée is full-bodied and dry, balanced with harmonious tannins and appears again with grassy notes and a volatile aftertaste of oak.
Vinification for the Tanca Farrà Alghero DOC by Sella & Mosca
The grape varieties for this wine are cultivated in the southeastern quadrant of the winery Sella & Mosca under the name "Tanca Farrà". Strong, iron-rich soils of red clay and the exposed sun and wind layers give the vines their special character. The Mediterranean climate of the island is characterized by warm summers and mild winters.
After pressing, the fermentation is preceded by a cold leaching of 1-2 days at a temperature of 22-28 ° Celsius. Only in the final phase are the two grape varieties put together to complete the process of transformation into wine and achieve the necessary harmony of the whole.
At the beginning, this wine is matured in barrique barrels, then in medium-sized oak barrels at a temperature of 15 ° Celsius and then matures for at least 6 months in the bottle.
