The Tanca Farrà Alghero DOC by Sella & Mosca appears in the glass in an intense ruby red garnet red reflection and reveals its expansive bouquet with aromas of blackcurrants, cassis, dried plum and some elderberry with subtle grassy notes.
On the palate, this cuvée is full-bodied and dry, balanced with harmonious tannins and appears again with grassy notes and a fleeting aftertaste of oak.
Vinification for the Tanca Farrà Alghero DOC by Sella & Mosca
The grape varieties for this wine are grown in the southeastern quadrant of the wineries of Sella & Mosca called "Tanca Farrà“. Strong, iron-bearing soils of red clay and the exposed sun and wind conditions give the vines their special character. The island's Mediterranean climate is characterized by warm summers and mild winters.
After winemaking, fermentation is preceded by cold leaching for 1-2 days at a temperature of 22-28 ° Celsius. Only in the final phase will the two grape varieties be put together in order to complete the process of conversion into wine and achieve the necessary harmony of the whole.
At the beginning, this wine is aged in barrique barrels, then in medium-sized oak barrels at a temperature of 15° Celsius and then matured in the bottle for at least 6 months.
