2021 Ghirada Garaunele A, Esole, Rosso di Barbagia
Federica Dessolis, a young female winemaker is making waves in Mamoiada, Sardinia. Her work experience at DRC, Vincent Girardin and Domaine Marcoux in France has given her the grounding to return to her native Sardinia working with old vines and indigenous varieties. This wine has vibrancy and freshness that can often be missing in many wines from the region. Expect wild flowers, raspberries, clove spice and herbal hints. The tannins are supple and ripe, yet with sufficient grip to provide great structure.
