Description

This range of wines has become extremely popular on the lists of some of the best Italian restaurants here in Ireland. Based around 60km north of Cagliari the vineyards have been in Artemio Olianas’s family since 1919. Artemio joined forces with Stefano Casadei (see Castello del Trebbio and Tenuta Casadei) in 2000 and the modern incarnation of the winery was born. Today they farm 25hA of vines organically and with a process, they call bio-Integrale which involves integrating with nature – so no mechanization in the vineyard (horses instead), plenty of farm animals on the land, and only natural herbicides and fertilizers. In the winery, Stefano who spent quite a bit of time in Georgia uses a lot of natural materials with partial or total fermentation in clay amphorae. All fermentations are spontaneous and there is little or no sulphur added at bottling. A supple and multi-layered Cannonau (Grenache) made entirely in Amphorae by Elena Casadei. Made from organically grown grapes on the Olianas estate the wine shows red and blueberry fruit, subtle spicy notes, minerality, and herbal notes. On the palate, the wines is round with smooth ripe tannins and a long, complex finish.
