Albori di Lampata IGT Isola dei Nuraghi, Capichera
Meaning 'June Dawn' in the ancient, Gallurese dialect, this is Capichera's interpretation of the Syrah grape from the single vineyard of Palau and Arzachena. Deep ruby red in colour with purple hues. Blackberries, blackcurrant, liquorice and violet with hints of pepper and spicy notes on the nose. Full and warm on the palate with great aromatic complexity, notes of myrtle, coffee, leather and dates. Excellent ageing potential.

A project which began 15 years ago with the intuition that Syrah vines, planted on the granite soil of the Capichera vineyards could express themselves in a unique way. SouthEast/East facing vineyards, 50-80 metres above sea level. This is only the 2nd vintage of this wine which is vinified traditionally then aged for 12 months in barrique with a further 12 months in bottle.
