Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion

RED WINE CARIGNANO DEL SULCIS 'BUIO' MESA 2020 DESCRIPTION

The Mesa Winery was founded in 2004 by Gavino Sanna, who oversaw with great love every detail of the winemaking process. The vineyards are situated in the territory of Sant'Anna Arresi, a lucky area, sheltered from the winds and surrounded by the sea. Even the label of wines has a tribute to his native Sardinia, as it reproduces a detail of the typical Sardinian tapestries. This red wine, powerful and austere, is produced by the vine Carignan and holds the smell of woods and the sea of Sardinia.
