Samas Isola dei Nuraghi 2019

Region: Italy / Sardinia
Grapes: 80% Vermentino, 20% Chardonnay

Samas is named after the Punic God of the Sun. Vermentino and Chardonnay grapes grown in a predominantly sandy soil are hand harvested at dawn to maintain characteristic varietal notes and freshness. Cryomaceration techniques prevent oxidation, resulting in a bright, vibrant wine. With prolonged fermentation using selected yeasts at controlled temperatures (60˚ Fahrenheit), the wine remains on the less for approximately 40 days. Vinified separately, the varieties rest in small concrete vats for 3 months once blended.
