Tradition and innovation

 

The beginning of the business is closely linked to the will, courage and attachment of the family to their land, which has employed all its forces to create products capable of reflecting the rare beauty of the Oliena territory with their flavors.

The company covers 50 hectares of which 30 are cultivated with vineyards.

Here to dominate is the red Cannonau, the “king of Sardinia”, a grape variety most likely indigenous, already present on the island more than 3000 years ago and for this reason considered the oldest in the Mediterranean. Widespread throughout the region, it has found its natural habitat in the Oliena area.

In the territory of Oliena as early as 1500 AD there is talk of a remarkable wine-growing activity by the Franciscan friars, who, after having founded a church and a convent, had planted a vineyard of over 10,000 vines with an adjoining oenological establishment of which there are imposing ruins. However, viticulture was already present.

Above all Gabriele D’Annunzio, who gave this wine the name that the ancient Greeks gave to a herb similar to opium and with hallucinogenic effects: NEPENTE.

Within this wonderful reality, perched at the foot of the Corrasi Massif, there are also 15 hectares of olive groves of the Nera di Oliena and Bosana varieties, from which the company obtains 1st quality extra virgin olive oils.

INFO
From the company vineyards located at the foot of Mount Corrasi, on a wide valley characterized by intense cultivation of olive groves and almond groves, this brut BALOI rosé wine is born with strong floral aromas and a finish of dried fruit to be enjoyed with the superb local productions.

After the first phase carried out in the cellar in which the Cannonau must is left in contact with the skins for 12 hours, the wine (transported to Valdobbiadene in special tanks), is clarified, decanted and filtered and is ready to be put into the autoclaves where the base of the selected yeasts was prepared with the addition of sugars and mineral salts to promote their activity.

The fermentation that takes place is very rapid, generally around 15-20 days (even less if the autoclave is equipped with stirrers). The sparkling wine is then passed to another autoclave by filtration in a hyperbaric environment, i.e. in overpressure to avoid carbon dioxide losses.

The sparkling wine is subjected to a low refrigeration temperature which causes the precipitation of tartaric acid, therefore it is again filtered always in conditions of constant temperature and hyperbaric environment, and always in this way it is bottled and corked.
