"All of us are committed to the sea, wave after wave the sea changes, the light changes, the ships change, and we change following this cosmic dance because we all came from the sea.
And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean. We have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came."
Sardinia is the magic place where this story begins. A story about this land, its sea and its sailors. Tagliamare is the result of the meeting between these elements.
The island with its landscapes, sweeping, rugged, crystalline; where dramatic rock-lined cliffs meet placid, emerald waters; where the salty aroma of the sea fills your lungs and time seems to stop.
This island is a real, raw and simply unspoiled paradise, and it is one of few places that remains untouched and sheltered from time. Despite centuries of foreign influence and struggle, local people have preserved their culture, carefully balancing modernity with a resilient sense of tradition.
The Sea of Sardinia is a body of water in the Mediterranean, shaken by the wind coming from the island on one side, reaching the Balearic islands on the other side, touching different realities and assimilating their flavours.
Tagliamare is a wine that is deeply rooted in this land and carries its antique traditions.
Nuragus, the wine grape that is used, grows very close to this sea, absorbing its scents and flavors. Its name refers to the first people who were living on this land, the sailors.
Its fermentation makes an extraordinary fresh product. Yellow colour with green tones, fine perlage, elegant aroma of white flowers, nectarine, pear and citrus fruits blended with the delicate scents of the Mediterranean scrub.
The label has a fishing net that refers to the unique characteristics of the wine.
When you uncork the bottle, the story is served in a glass.
Notes about the grape
The vine Nuragus is, between the white grapes, the most widely grown in Sardinia.
Its cultivation is more concentrated in the provinces of Cagliari and Oristano, where it seems to have been introduced in ancient times, most probably by the Phoenicians.
The bud is very tortuous, with a green-yellow colour and red stripes in the inside part. The shape opens to the extremity and shows many veins. The leaf is pentagonal and with various lobes. The cluster has a conical, cylindrical, large shape and it's made up of numerous grapes.
The grapes are large with an elliptical shape and medium length and width. The skin is yellow with golden sheen and pink hues, while the flesh is colourless.
Compared to other Sardinian varieties, Nuragus starts to germinate pretty early (third decade of March and first ten days of April), flowering and veraison periods are medium while flowering is late.
