Its birth came after failed attempts of growing original Port varietals in the Sardinian plains, after which Sella & Mosca trialled the Port wine production technique using the native Cannonau. Anghelu Ruju DOC is one of the most representative products of Sella & Mosca, a true flagship of the Alghero and pride for the whole of Sardinia: an Alghero DOC Vino Liquoroso Riserva obtained from sun-dried Cannonau grapes, fortified just like the infamous Port or Madeira wines. Only the best bunches from Sella & Mosca’s vineyards are selected at perfect ripeness, between the second and third week of September, when the acidity is still high. They’re carefully laid out on frames in the sun for twenty days, lifted from the ground to ensure optimum ventilation and covered at night or in bad weather. Once dried, the grapes are vinified in traditional red style until a final residual sugar content of 90g/lt and a natural alcohol volume of 12%-13% is obtained. At this point the wine ages in steel until the spring, followed by fortification to bring the alcohol up to 19%. Finally, the wine is transferred to large oak barrels where it matures for a minimum of five years in order to refine its structure, softness and overall taste. This gem should be drunk at room temperature, or even slightly chilled, and pairs best with rich, dark chocolate and desserts alike. It’s a superb meditation wine for all those relaxed winter evenings. Presented in wooden presentation box with reusable cork stopper.
