Frore is a still white wine produced by the Demelas family of Atzara in Sardinia, Italy. It is classified as Isola dei Nuraghi IGT and is made from red grapes that are indigenous to the Mandrolisai area, from 100% of the company’s own vineyards.
The grapes are grown in vineyards on soils of granite breakdown and have a yield of 60 quintals per hectare. Harvesting is carried out by hand in boxes during the first ten days of September.
In the winery, the vinification process begins with crushing and destemming the grapes, followed by rapid separation of the must flower from the skins. The wine ferments for two weeks at a controlled temperature of 17°C. Afterward, Frore Isola dei Nuraghi IGT matures for six months in steel tanks.
It is recommended to serve Frore at a temperature of 8-10°C.
The label features the Peony flower, which is a delicate and thornless symbol of Sardinia. The Peony blossoms at an altitude of over 700 meters and is only allowed twenty days a year. The label also displays a brocade detail of the traditional women’s dress of Atzara, the village where the Demelas family originates.
The Peony flower symbolizes Frore as a wine that unexpectedly blossoms in the midst of holm oak forests and imposing mountains, despite the region being known for red wines. This wine is a renewal of tradition that brings forth a white wine from the red grapes. The label closes with the circle of personifications of family figures, with Frore represented by the most delicate flower, to be protected and admired, like the children at home.
