Sergio Loi is a 4th generation traditional Sardinian producer, whose family winery from the early 900s has always practiced no chemical farming and minimum intervention in the cellar. The Cardedu [car-DAY-do] vineyards are located on the island�s sparsely populated Southeast, on crumbling granite soils near the coast, and schist in the
ragged-dry hills and cliffs around Jerzu.
Bucce? means skins, as in macerated on the skins / ?macerato sulle bucce?. This ?macerato? / orange wine is very drinky: sour Mirabelle plums, sea salt, and dried white flowers float on bass notes of coastal wild rosemary and myrtle. Blend of Vermentino, Cannonau, Nasco. Vermentino and Nasco are left to ferment on the skins for 2 nights. Cannonau harvest follows a few weeks later; grapes are quickly pressed after only a few hours on the skins. The two tanks are blended and left to mature ?in cavernous cement tanks for a minimum of 6 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
