Terroir, growing system and harvest time.
Badde Pira, Sorso (SS). This is in one of the most suitable places of Sardinian viticulture, Sorso, located in the north coast of Sardinia, on sandstone and limestone hills lashed by Mistral salty wind. The exposure of the plots gives an excellent grapes maturation. It usually occurs between August and September. The low rainfall and intense solar radiation help to grow up healthy grapes endowed with high qualitative profile. The training system is a counter with Guyot pruning: the accurate pruning provides an average yield per hectare of about 65 quintals.
The harvest and the production processes.
The harvest is carried out strictly by hand with plastic crates washed with hot water under pressure. The grapes are cut in the early morning and then transferred to the cellar. There they are crushed and the juice is left in contact with the skins for 12 hours. The dirt must then ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks until the sugars are completely transformed in alcohol. Then battonage operations are carried out weekly until the wine is finally filtered and bottled.
Visual analysis.
In the glass the Muscat millenovecento64 is limpid with a pale straw yellow shade.
Nose analysis.
Stand out the mineral notes with strong references to dried fruit, honey and orange blossoms.
Taste analysis.
Fresh, mineral and with a surprising salinity. This is a wine with infinite persistence in the mouth, enhanced by a marked acidity. It is a wine that loves to destabilize senses.
