This is the Cru of Capichera. Numerous harvests of individual plots have enabled us to recognise, after many years, the peculiarities of the "Coddhu ecchju" plot with its incomparable characteristics. The Santigaìni is undoubtedly the most elegant and unique expression of a Vermentino with a disruptive personality, and a freshness and longevity that leave one astounded. Put on the market 4 years after the harvest, it has been produced in very few bottles since 2003. The name Santigaìni indicates the month of October.
