Santigaìni 2016

The Capichera Cru. Numerous harvests from single parcels of land have enabled us, after some years, to recognise the particular, incomparable qualities of the “Coddhu ecchju” plot. Santigaìni is undoubtedly the most elegant and unique expression of a Vermentino with a forceful personality, and a freshness and longevity that leave you speechless. Placed on the market 4 years after harvesting, it has been produced in a very limited number of bottles since 2003. The name Santigaìni indicates the month of October.
