2019 - Tre Bicchieri - Gambero Rosso

This has aromas of just pressed grapes, scorched earth, violet and Mediterranean scrub. Rounded and fleshy, the palate recalls mature Marasca cherry, vanilla, black pepper and candied notes before grainy tannins step in and grip the close.

Varietals: 30% Sardinian Bovale, 35% Cannonau, 20% Monica and 15% Carignano and Barbera.

The Bentu Luna project realised that the key is to give families a better economic return. After discussions with the farmers and inhabitants of Neoneli, Bentu Luna partnered with nine families by renting their vineyards. As a result, those families receive a more significant income while retaining ownership of the land with the ability to pass it on to subsequent generations.
Bentu Luna’s small team of experts partner with local workers in the participating vineyards to produce high-quality grapes. In addition, Bentu Luna provides winegrowing know-how, infrastructure and distribution. It’s a new, humanistic, approach; creating a sustainable and equitable business with financial benefits for all.

The vineyards are naturally organic; they’ve never even seen a tractor, let alone modern chemicals. This situation remains, as the vineyard work continues by hand, with oxen for ploughing. Unusually, all the vines for the red wines are old, ranging from 35 to 115 years of age. Indeed, of the current 20 hectares of vineyard, 70% of the vines average 40 years, while the remaining 30% are a minimum of 60 years old.
