Long-rumored among wine intellectuals that the Bovale grape varietal was somehow imported by the Spanish Conquest of Sardinia in the 1700’s.
Signaling to antiquity, Muristellu by the Atha Ruja winery is produced at a scarce level of 1,333 bottles per annum. Harvested by the most careful hands, and aged in oak for 3 years followed by 1 year of bottle rest before release. For the artifact-inclined wine aficionado, this is a rare piece worth seeking. Decanting for 2 hours minimum and slow sipping is recommended.
