Red Wine DOC
The Bovale Sardo is a native vine of red grapes, also present in other parts of Italy. It is characterized by the composition of the bunch and the high sugar content. The Bovale Sardo also has a high concentration of pigments, flavones, which lately have been recognized as major sources of antioxidants. The term “Bovale” identifies two varieties, the Bovale Sardo and Bovale of Spain also called great Bovale, both arrived in Sardinia from the Iberian Peninsula probably during the Aragonese domination (about 1300). Recent research confirms the substantial differences between the two varieties of Bovale. The Bovale Sardi is cultivated in almost the whole island but finds its best expression in the sunny wine lands of the Mandrolisai in Nuoro, and in the zone of Terralba, Oristano. It has various synonyms: the most common is “Muristellu” or “Muristella”, but is also called “Bovaleddu” or “Bovali piticcu”, or Vitis affinis, being similar to the Monica variety. The wine is rich in extract, in alcohol and polyphenolic complexity, particularly where derived from vines grown using the alberello sardo technique, and is harvested late in the season. Is vinified together with other black varieties to obtain valuable wines that you can pair with roast meats: in particular along with Cannonau and Monica it has the DOC title of Mandrolisai; it is also used with the Bovale of Spain for the DOC wine Campidano Terralba or Terralba.
Food pairings: the produced wines are paired with game, roast meats and eel, cheese, salami, pasta or risotto, fresh cheese (depending on the percentage of different grapes that make the wine).
