Winemaker Notes

Ruby red in color with garnet hues, this wine is intense on the nose, showing aromas of cherries and myrtle Mediterranean herbs. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and offers bright acidity with notes of wild cherries, underbrush and spices.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Ottomarzo Badde Nigolosu is a pure expression of the Pascale grape. Pascale is a synonym for Bovale, and it is often used as a blending element with Cannonau in local wines, but the Dettori family ferments it as a monovarietal wine instead (and is one of the very few to do so). There remains some confusion here, because some consider Pascale to be its own distinct variety that also goes by the name Pascale di Cagliari. This wine is immediately open and soft with dark fruit, dried cassis and black prune. There are touches of scorched earth and smoked spice as well. This is a rich, medium-bodied wine with soft tannins and good textural richness. The wine shows an integrated 15% alcoholic content, making it ideal for a matzamurru, a breaded Sardinian mutton casserole with tomato and pecorino.

Hailed for centuries as a Mediterranean vine-growing paradise, multiple cultures over many centuries have ruled the large island of Sardinia. Set in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Phonoecians, Ancient Rome, and subsequently the Byzantines, Arabs and Catalans have all staked a claim on the island at some point in history. Along the way, these inhabitants transported many of their homeland’s prized vines and today Sardinia’s modern-day indigenous grape varieties claim multiple origins. Sardinia’s most important red grapes—namely Cannonau (a synonym for Grenache) and Carignan—are actually of Spanish origin.

Vermentino, a prolific Mediterranean variety, is the island’s star white. Vermentino has a stronghold the Languedoc region of France as well as Italy’s western and coastal regions, namely Liguria (where it is called Pigato), Piedmont (where it is called Favorita) and in Tuscany, where it goes by the name, Vermentino. The best Vermentino, in arguably all of the Mediterranean, grows in Sardinia's northeastern region of Gallura where its vines struggle to dig roots deep down into north-facing slopes of granitic soils. These Vermentino vines produce highly aromatic, full and concentrated whites of unparalleled balance.

Today aside from its dedication to viticulture, Sardinia remains committed to maintaining its natural farmlands, bucolic plains of grazing sheep and perhaps most of all, its sandy, sunny, Mediterranean beaches.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
