Cantina Mesa Cantina Mesa "Primo Rosso" Isola dei Nuraghi 2012

Cantina Mesa is a new project from a Milanese advertising executive who decided to shut up shop and set up a winery in Sardinia. This is Mesa's "basic" red and as it has not been aged in oak, it shines with mouthwatering bright red fruits and a lovely freshness to the palate.


VINEYARD
The estate comprises 70 hectares in the heart of Sulcis Iglesiente.

The largest part of the vineyards is located in the Sant`Anna Arresi area, in a valley sheltered from the maestrale winds and surrounded by the sea.

The vines are vertically trained, largely to spurred cordon, some to the alberello, or bush, style, depending on local conditions and exposure.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Carignano/Carignan

VINIFICATION
At Cantina Mesa, harvest of the red grapes commenced on 10th September and concluded on 10th October. The clusters were sound and healthy, since leaf-thinning and careful anti-fungal treatments counteracted conditions that were otherwise favourable to attack by oïdium and by vine moths and leafhoppers.

After the grapes were de-stemmed and crushed, the juice flowed using gravity into fermenters on the level below where the must underwent maceration and fermentation for four to six days.

The wine remained for three months in stainless steel tanks and in lined cement vats before bottling. The wine was aged for a further two months before release.

TASTING NOTE
Cantina Mesa "Primo Rosso" Isola dei Nuraghi 2012 is deep ruby red in colour. The bouquet is rich, with emphatic fragrances of ripe wild berry fruit. Impressions of red berry fruit continue on the palate, which boasts a firm structure and notable balance among its components. The finish is long and lingering.
