3 NODI - ISOLA DEI NURAGHI IGT
A DISTINCTIVE NOTE
From Vermentino vines that breathe in the Mistral winds and soak up the quartz-rich soil of their native Sardinia. This elegant and exclusive dessert wine is a gift from nature – made only in years when botrytis cinerea (or “Noble Rot”) spontaneously grows on the indigenous grapes, adding a notable and unique flavor.
Many vineyards dry Vermentino indoors after harvesting, or, pinch the vine to accelerate the drying process. At Vigne Rada, Vermentino grapes are patiently and faithfully allowed to dry on the vine, allowing the plants to continue adding aroma and natural sweetness. While this gamble means that 3 Nodiis not available each year, when it is, the result offers a rich and complex wine.
A TASTING NOTE
3 Nodi (Italian for “3 knots”) is intended to be enjoyed slowly, like a sail boat rolling through the harbor. Savoring the subtle natural sweetness and hints of minerals from Vigne Rada’s unique proximity to the sea.
