"Full of power and freshness, the Sestalino tells of the mineral marine deposits in the soil."Federico Zaina, Winemaker, Finca Ses Talaioles
MINERALITY » SESTALINO, the little brother of SESTAL, impresses with freshness and minerality. A lighter but round, fruity and full-bodied wine, to be combined with all dishes, but also pleasant to be drunk alone. It owes its minerality to the marine deposits in the deep layers where it takes root. The imprint of fossil sea rocks adorns its label.
Winemaking & Ageing
Gentle treatment of the vines with natural products. Careful cultivation of the soil, promoting biodiversity, to ensure the resistance and health of the vines. Harvested grapes are stored in cold chambers for up to 12 hours to preserve aromas and avoid oxidation during processing.
Manual selection of the grapes, handpicking of the berries. No use of sulphites before fermentation. Instead, use of non-saccharomyces yeasts for fruit enhancement, increase in typicity and complexity similar to that of wild fermentation, with the added benefit of lowering the sulphur content in the wine.
Fermentation in inox tanks. Extended maceration completed 7 days after the end of fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in inox tanks.
16 months in French oak (1 year old).
Intense red colour with violet reflections.
Fresh aromas of blackcurrants and blackberries and notes of liquorice, mocha and tobacco leaves.
Balanced and round on the palate, with fruity aromas of plums and cherries and hints of chestnuts and Mediterranean spices. Mineral notes, multi-faceted body and balanced interplay of acidity, alcohol and tannins.
SESTALINO can be enjoyed on its own or with light meals such as salads, pasta and tapas. It goes well with spareribs, sobrassada, semi-matured cheeses and chocolatey desserts.
