WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
It is the truest expression of Sa Defenza’s idea of winemaking
Macerated wines, or Orange Wines, are the most authentic expression of the philosophy that Fratelli Marchi would like to convey through their wines. In order to produce a macerated wine, it is necessary that the soils from which the grapes, in this case of Vermentino, are born, are rich in mineral salts to be released to the plants, and this can only happen if the land is respected and cultivated with biodynamic methods. In addition, the winemaking process must be completed in a completely natural way.
The Vermentino grapes that will give rise to “Sacava on the skins” are harvested by hand in early September and left to ferment spontaneously. Maceration, a fundamental step for this wine, takes at least 20 days, in which the skins yield aromas and colors that will later be found in the glass. Aging takes place in steel and in the bottle. There is no filtration, as Sacava is a low-impact macerated wine and completely natural.
The aromas of “Sacava sulle bucce” are the classic ones of Vermentino di Sardegna, amplified by the maceration to which it is subjected.
At the table, its intensity, typical of Orange Wines, makes it also suitable for pairing with cured meats and game; with raw fish it forms a very classy combination and, if you like to experiment, try it with Asian cuisines or spicy dishes. If you love sushi you have found the wine for you!
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it brings to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
