This product line (wine and grappa) was born in honour of the upland of the same name in Gebelias place, close to which the hills where our vineyards are planted rise up. The upland (called “Gebel” that in arabic means “mountain”) and sourrinding areas are famous for the important archeological discoveries. In particular, during the soil settlement for the planting of vineyard, several askoide pitchers have been found. They were probably used to pour out, sell and export wine, which has been produced for ages on this upland, to all the Mediterranean sea. We recently readjusted and graphically reworked our labels, enphatising the remarkable beauty of these amphoras full of precious and unique decorations.
This line, which we called Battaglie, consists of three high quality wines: Karam Cannonau DOC of Sardinia, Amistral Vermentino DOC of Sardinia, Riak Cannonau Rosé Doc of Sardinia.
We chose the idea of the three battles to express both strength and value of these sardinian products , which we hope can soon reach tables and markets all over the world.
They are ancient battles, performed during Nuragic era on land, sea and air, so as it used to happen in ancient times. They are symbols of our Land, they are the famous bronzetti with shield (translator’s note: sardinian small bronze statues) (also knowns as 4-eyes-and-4-arms warriors), popular nuragic boats, heroic Shardana archers with bow and arrows.
They have been intentionally designed using a cahotic geometry but at the same time with simple and clean lines.
