The Vermentino Orriu Quartomoro is produced from 100% Vermentino grapes from the Monti area at an altitude of 50 meters above the sea level. The vineyards for the Vermentino Orriu Quartomoro were planted in 1995 on a sandy and clay soil. The harvest is manual with selection in the vineyard, the grapes are softly pressed and fermented at 16-17C. The wine is then matured on the yeast for 4 months and aged in bottle before release.
“ORRIU in Sardinian means intertwining, weft, warp fabrics, tapestries or carpets produced with the technique of weaving threads are the most precious in this field. The Orriu project has the ambition to recover the Sardinian wine tradition intertwining it to the present, therefore, will be knotted threads that ferry traditions, stories and viticultural stories of this wonderful and mysterious island: – the thread of biodiversity present in the historical vines – the thread of human and personal experiences of men anchored to their land – the thread of the passions and dreams of those who consider the historical-environmental specificity a great asset to preserve, defend and protect – the thread that preserves tradition with all its cultural load. ” – PIERO CELLA
Quartomoro di Sardegna was initially used by Piero Cella himself to experiment and test different ideas to learn more about his own wines. This led him naturally to develop it into what it is today, a kind of ‘workshop of ideas’ where new wines are created.
It is a quintessential selection chosen to represent the true culture of wine in Sardinia.
Quartomoro di Sardegna embodies an intertwining of grapes, experiences and cultures exactly like its birthplace: Arborea, a living synergy between being Sardinian and continental influences. Their mission is to produce wines that best represent one of the most interesting territories in terms of biodiversity: Sardinia. They respect what nature has given us and protect it with minimal intervention in the vineyard and in the cellar with the winemaking.
