Cantina Murales’s History and Philosophy
The chromatic impact of Sardinia is strong and perhaps many do not know that Sardinia is the homeland of muralism in Italy, in fact in some of its countries there are some of the most beautiful murals in the world. An artistic form born as a free expression of protest movements and it is no coincidence that Cantina Murales has adopted this name.
This inspiration is found not only in their wine, but also in labels such as the white Lumenera Vermentino di Gallura DOCG, which depicts a scene set at dusk, or in the red Millant anni depicting an old man sitting with a stick, or in the red To Posterior Isola Dei Nuraghi. I.G.T, where two hands are engraved on the black background as a metaphor for the gift. The winery is based in Olbia in Piliezzu Gallura, and is managed by the Canopoli family. Born in 2007, it has a very large production of wines that have a well-defined character that is expressed both in substance and in colors, golden, bright or subtle of whites and intense, deep or vivid of reds.
All this is favored by the soils composed of: sand, granite, schistose or mixed, in which the vineyards are located, an integral part of the landscape, which are beaten by sea winds throughout the year. Just the proximity to the sea contributes and gives rise to products with the most varied organoleptic characteristics and a strong territorial characterization.
The wines of Cantina Murales
The varieties of vines used by the company for wine production are both native and international: Cannonau, Vermentino, Caricagiola, Viognier, Malvasia Nera, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carignano, Girò. The practice in the cellar is very meticulous, a meticulousness that denotes a certain regard for the care, above all, in the processing for the whites, for example for the Vermentino grapes, while for the reds the attention is paid to the processing of Cannonau, based on mostly on late harvests, the most representative of the Sardinian territory, which, as is well known, is a very intense grape variety and research is centered on refinement.
The produced line consists of 5 whites and 5 reds plus a sparkling wine and a sweet wine. We suggest among the various labels, all prestigious, the fragrant, fresh and soft Vermentino di Gallura Lumenera. Finally Murales also offers the possibility of a stop in the restaurant of the inn, the result of a welcoming restoration, where you can taste the wines produced in combination with typical regional dishes.
