Scattered throughout the astounding hills of Marmilla, in Sardinia, Cantina Lilliu’s vineyards grapes lay down in the ancient Highlands of Sa Jara Manna and Sa Jara Pittica, absorbing their history and traditions.
Firmly convinced that the best wine is born in the vineyards, Pietro e Roberta buy neither grapes nor musts. They just work on their grapes which slowly ripen thanks to synergistic agriculture and dry-farming techniques. ”Mendula”, strong and fragrant, is characterized by a deep yellow colour and a persistent toasted almond taste. Indeed, the word ”Mendula” means almond in the Sardinian dialect.
It is a long life wine, made to endure in the time.
Malvasia’s vine variety has been farmed since immemorial time in Marmilla, where, thanks to a clayish and calcareous terrain, it can express its features at his best.
