Winery: Our calling card wine that most reflects the tradition of our company, it is obtained from a careful selection of our cannonau grapes from old vines located in the countryside of Mamoiada in the "Elisi" and "Perdas Longas", the latter, whose meaning is “long stones” (given the large presence of Menhir in the area) gives rise to the name of our wine.  Ruby deep and intense color to the eye. The olfactory gives an articulated and complex texture, with notes of dark overripe fruit and jam that blend admirably together with the precious tertiary nuances given by the passage in wood. The taste is extremely elegant in a perfect balance between warmth and freshness, with a refined tannic setting, closed by a very long persistence.


My Tasting Note
Med-med+ ruby-garnet robe.  The nose shows cherry and other red fruits and spices, with some cool tar notes (like Barolo).  On the palate, the fruit here is intense with energy and intensity, it is dark red cherry and wild strawberries.  The tannin are med+ but work well with the fleshy fruit.  The flavors broaden and deepen on the mid-palate, literally taking off into a long, fresh, mouthwatering, and long fruit in the finish.
