The Bovale/Bobal vine in its sardinian adaptation is called Bovaleddu (small berry Bovale) or even Muristellu . It’s a legacy from the Spanish domination, which began in the fourteenth century.
Compared to the traditional spanish Bovale, it presents a very small berry, little pulp and strong peel. Due to its thick “skin”, the cluster of Bovaleddu is not damaged by birds and adverse weather.
This is a great starting point to get an intense wine, almost a food wine.
Ciù Roussou (“Redder”) is a pimp wine, flowing silky in the mouth and releases notes of ripe red fruits and spices . It’s made for entertaining, for conviviality, to win everybody.
