Santigaini IGT Isola dei Nuraghi, Capichera
The Santigaini name is taken from an ancient Sardinian dialect and means 'October'. Bright straw yellow in colour with green golden hues, slightly hazy. Intense opening aroma with floral sensations and hints of honey, citrus fruit, aromatic herbs, saltiness and lavender, alternating and blending and reappearing in a harmonious sequence. Rounded, lively and complex. The freshness, fruits and minerals blend in a single cohesive texture and provide a beautiful, lingering finish.
