Right here are the winery and the monoculture vineyards planted with Malvasia di Sardegna. Right here is where you can enjoy the wonderful sight of the sea. Right here is where Malvasia EO comes from.  

Even when consumed long after bottling, it never tastes dry.

Experience, science, and a touch of technology are mixed together to complete  a process lasting forty-eight months. 

Aging takes place in small old Slavonian oak barrels. Unlike the popular French barrique, Slavonian oak releases the proper amount of oxygen the wine requires.

Periodically barrels in Emidio Oggianu winery are given a “ face lift”: once uncovered, wine sediment settled in them is scratched away. Thanks to this process, barrels may last forever.   

Emilio Oggianu, the owner of the winery having his same name, may be regarded as a wise old man. This is the way he summarizes the factors that make special his Malvasia di Bosa:     

Maestralino. We fenced vineyards in order to protect them from the stormy mistral. Yet, Maestralino blowing in the afternoon, that is what gives our wine its character and sapidity, can properly blow from under the pruned hedge. 

Light. When new shoots are pinched out, we leave a very wide structure so that leaves provide shade to the grape clusters during the hottest parts of the day, when the rays of the sun are perpendicular to the ground. 

Time.  We cut grape clusters only when they are ripe. That is why the harvesting of wine takes place in several stages, each time when clusters are ready to be cut. 

Our little secret. Some time before harvesting, we cut and ferment some grape clusters, thus obtaining our own yeasts. During harvesting, we inject the previously obtained yeasts into vats so that grape must can immediately start fermenting".

 

 

MALVASIA di Bosa

Characteristics and place of origin

Fine and elegant dessert or meditation wine. Frequently boasted for its amazing elegance, and regarded as symbol of friendship and hospitality, it is  kept for important people and special occasions. 

Malvasia is one of the most common white vines in all the Mediterranean wine areas. There is a great number of vines labelled Malvasia which sometime differ one from another. Sardinian Malvasia vine is of Byzantine origins and surely reached Sardinia thanks to landings at Karalis and Bosa. 

According to scholarship interested in Sardinian wines, there is a clear difference between Malvasia wine made in Campidano and that made in Bosa. The difference is related, not only to their different pedoclimatic conditions, but also to the existence of two different species of the same grape variety in the two areas. In Sardinia Malvasia vine, vinification produces two DOC wines with different features: Malvasia di Cagliari and Malvasia di Bosa.
