(SASSARI) Paolo Depperu is a winery that produces wines in Sas Ruinas in Sardinia. Famous for Ruinas Colli del Limbara IGT, Vermentino di Gallura Luris and many others.
Paolo Depperu’s History and Philosophy
The Paolo Depperu Company, a historic Sardinian winery is located in Località Sas Ruinas, in the municipality of Luras, a characteristic ‘granite’ village, in the province of Olbia-Tempio. Luras is an agricultural and handicraft center of upper Gallura, famous for its 4 Dolmen, funerary monuments built starting from the recent Neolithic, which in these parts have a concentration like nowhere else on the island, but which is also a custodian of winemaking traditions rooted in the production of Vermentino, but above all for a wine that one has the habit of thinking of it as Piedmont, but which in this area is among the excellences: Nebbiolo.
The history of this winery dates back to the early 2000s and was founded by Paolo Depperu, but attutamele is carried on, with passion and dedication by the three sons Luciano, Andrea and Giovanni, divided into the duties of: sales manager, cellarman and winemaker.
The granite distinguishes the soft hills in the shadow of the Limbara massif, which forms the backdrop to the landscape; a stone that characterizes the DNA of the 15 hectares of land planted with vines, of which 12 are planted in Vermentino and 3 hectares in Nebbiolo, located at about 400m asl, which derive precisely from granite breakup, with the presence of basalt and other effusive rocks, medium texture and tending to sandy. The espalier vines, with spurred cordon and sapling pruning, enjoy an exposure and a microclimate tempered by sea breezes, which then characterize the structure of the wines.
The wines of Paolo Depperu
In the cellar, the work reflects the great Sardinian tradition for winemaking, equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, and is made entirely with stainless steel material and equipment. A winery that increasingly validates its living expression, typical of a land like Sardinia and its territoriality, which is found in the offered and well-articulated line.
The wines are exhilarating to drink, like the two whites: the Ruinas igt Colli del Limbar, with a sweet taste and the Luris Vermentino di Gallura docg, large and velvety, produced exclusively with 100% Vermentino grapes. While the reds have nothing to envy to the wines produced by the Piedmontese colleagues, such as the top of the range of large-scale Karabadis igt of the Colli del Limbara, or the elegant and generous Tiu Paolo, both produced with 100% Nebbiolo grapes. They are wines, which reflect the commitment and family history of this company and which guarantee and strengthen the value of this area of Gallurese.
