Nepente of Oliena Reserve DOC

“Hospes,” from the Latin “Hospes, itis: Guest,” in memory of the hospitality that Oliena offered to Gabriele D’Annunzio, Edoardo Scarfoglio, and Cesare Pascarella during their journey in Sardinia, where they were pleasantly captivated by all that Oliena has to offer, a land of shepherds and embroiderers, rich in oil, wine, and honey. Hospes comes from the best selection of our grapes and is only produced in particularly favorable vintages. It undergoes fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, where it rests for about a year. Subsequently, it continues its refinement in new fine-grained French oak tonneaux of 500 liters for 18 months.

Word from the sommelier:
Color: Intense ruby red.

Taste: Hospes excels in balance. It is a wine with good tannins and characterized by a not overly high alcohol content that delicately harmonizes with the acidity.

Bouquet: On the nose, it presents itself intense and persistent, with hints of ripe red fruit, licorice, and vanilla, with a soft and enveloping finish. Swirling the glass reveals hints of Mediterranean scrub and a slight, well-balanced toasting alongside the fruity notes.

Pairings: It is recommended to taste it at a serving temperature between 16 and 18 degrees Celsius, paired with meat-based main courses.
