    • "Karmis" Bianco Tharros IGT 2018

      “Karmis” Bianco Tharros IGT 2018

      Karmis, a pleasing Vernaccia-based white wine, comes from the lower Tirso valley in the area between Cabras and Baratili - where the climate is typically Mediterranean with mild winters, little rain and very hot, airy summers. And so its colour is brilliant and deep yellow, the bouquet delicate but persistent for fresh fruit. Soft, full and with good aroma correspondence on the palate. An excellent aperitif and accompaniment to light meals. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Barrile” Isola dei Nuraghi IGT 2013

      Paolo Contini's cherryy Nieddera interpretation is a deep ruby red with the typical aromas of ripe plum and cherry. Barrile is a magnificent wine of great richness, soft and warm after sweet cherries, fresh, structured and with a sweet wood spice. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This blend showcases two indigenous varieties—nieddera and caddiu—cultivated almost exclusively in the Tirso Valley. Intriguing flavors of juicy plums laced with fennel and briny notes of black olives give it a distinctly southern Italian character. A year in small and medium-sized barrels imparted black spice notes and mellowed the firm tannins. Rich and mouthwatering, this would be delicious alongside braised fennel and sweet sausage."

      There are only about 8,000 (0.375l) bottles of this exceptional cultural heritage wine, the only one in Italy that matures under a natural floral yeast layer that gives it its unmistakable character. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright pale amber-gold. Lovely lift to the aromas of orange peel, ginger, brown sugar, and grilled hazelnut. Super concentrated and glyceral but with terrific penetration and verve to its flavors of orange oil, honey and hazelnut spread. Not at all heavy or over the top, this extremely long, savory wine will easily last decades. Not especially sweet, this rich wine will work best with aged cheeses, including blues or rich, hearty long cooked white meat stews." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "Elegant and understated with lovely walnut, almond and caramel aromas. The palate is beautifully pure and bitter sweet. Delicious." Decanter

    About the winemakers
    Attilio Contini
    Sardinia
    Attilio Contini

    At the Azienda Vinicola Attilio Contini wine connoisseurs involuntarily think of the legendary Vernaccia di Oristano. Located near Cabras, a medieval fishing village on the west coast of Sardinia in the province of Oristano and founded by Salvatore Contini about 120 years ago, the family winery continues to offer this glorious and originally most important, but less and less traded fine wine as a speciality. In the course of time, however, other wines of high quality full of character have found their way into the now very extensive range of Attilio Contini. The oldest winery on the Mediterranean island has undergone many changes and innovations in the course of its history. Today he is very passionately and competently continued by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren according to the local tradition of his founder.

    Just a few kilometres from Oristano, the winery with its 80 hectares of vineyards is situated in the heart of the Sinis Peninsula marine reserve. The sun-drenched fields rise above the Tirso valley and are located on the slopes of Monte Arci. A fresh sea breeze gives the Attilio Contini wines a slightly salty minerality. In the 1980s, the family began to explore the potential of historical autochthonous grape varieties. It has been instrumental in upgrading Sardinian varieties such as Cannonau and Vermentino. The extremely interesting, but not very widespread Nieddera have saved the Continis from oblivion, along with a few other winegrowers from Sardinia.

    With no prejudice to the merits of modern wine-growing technology, Attilio Contini continues the tradition of progress. The winery is known for special, very fascinating wines of high expressiveness. The spectrum of typical and terroir-true labels is broad: it ranges from old Vernaccia Riserve to impressive red and white plants. In order to underline a special closeness to nature, some wines without sulphite additives are produced in the cellar under the aegis of the creative and innovative oenologist Piero Cella.

    The long history of Attilio Contini has always been accompanied by a great deal of attention and recognition from the wine critics. Already in 1912 and 1913 Vernaccia wines of the family were awarded gold medals at the International Exhibition in Milan. In 1989 the wine guide Gambero Rossoselected the winery as the first Sardinian winery with the coveted Tre bicchieri. SUPERIORE.DE
