Unmaredivino: “Oltremare, a new Wine of Ancient Flavors”
The recent Vinitaly Show in Verona saw the official launch of this new, important red wine from Gioacchino Sini, Unmaredivino.
Grapes used for this wine come from Gioacchino’s historic vineyard in the area of Mount Acuto, in Gallura. The family property includes a centuries-old cork oak forest and the vineyard, replanted in 2000 where the ancient vineyard, dating back to 1949, was originally located, on a soil of granite origins. We are between 250 and 400 meters above sea level, in an environment immersed in the aromas from the neighboring cork oak forest: myrtle, arbutus, “ginestra” (spanish broom), asphodel and blackberry.
With “Oltremare” (that in English translates: Overseas), Gioacchino Sini, wants to offer his first red wine aged in oak. The blend is made from indigenous grapes such as Carignano and Muristellu, and international varietals, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Each grape is vinified separately, aged for 18 months in oak (Barrique), then blended before it rests for further 6 months in the bottle.
The name “Oltremare” is a good omen for a wine that wants to navigate on many seas and reach out for countries beyond the oceans!
