Kentu is a still red wine Isola dei Nuraghi IGT, made from Cannonau, Muristellu (Bovale Sardo) and Monica grapes, produced by Cantina Genna Manna di Laconi.
The grapes come from vineyards located in Mandrolisai and Sarcidano, in the villages of Atzara and Laconi.
The vineyards grow in a perfect terroir with a temperate climate, with hot summers and little rain and mild winters with a moderate temperature range between day and night.
The traditional bush-training system is used with modest planting density that allows low yields, not exceeding 50 quintals.
Once the grapes reach the perfect degree of ripeness, they are harvested by hand and placed in small wooden crates. The harvest usually takes place between the third decade of September and the first of October.
In the winery, the grapes are destemmed and then pressed. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature with frequent pumping over and delastage to ensure optimal extraction of the polyphenolic component of the grapes.
The wine matures at a controlled temperature for approximately 8-10 months in stainless steel tanks and for a further 2 months in the bottle.
Kentu IGT Isola dei Nuraghi has an intense red colour with violet reflections.
The nose is intense, with hints of ripe red fruit, jam and small berries. Spicy and balsamic notes of aromatic plants of the Mediterranean maquis are perceived.
In the mouth it is full-bodied, warm and enveloping, pleasantly alcoholic with soft and balanced tannins.
At table it accompanies rich and structured dishes of Mediterranean cuisine. Excellent with meat ragout, game roast, fish, medium-long seasoned cheeses.
Serve in large glasses at cellar temperature.
