It is the yoke that binds us to the land.
It is the new great wine from Cantine di Dolianova.
Jù. From the yoke's Sardinian name comes the wine that presents a challenge to the great wines.
Jù was the name of the oxen yoke that crossed our vineyards to open up the ground and make it fertile, ready to welcome the vines.
Today, the name of the oxen yoke becomes the name of a wine that conveys the spirit of our history.
Jù will not be just a new wine. It will be the most important of our labels poised to challenge the great wines.
Jù, two letters, a short and strong sound, to describe with a single syllable the soul of a winery that never stops, ready to face the future with wisdom and courage.

Nose: the bouquet is intense, deep, and well structured. Dense hints of ripe cherry, spices, and balsamic notes reminiscent of Mediterranean scrub can be perceived.
Taste: generous and elegant body, aromas of ripe red fruit and liquorice emerge, accompanied by sweet spices and refined tannins.
100% local red grapes.
AREA OF PRODUCTION
Land surrounding the Winery, characterised by medium texture soils composed of clayey limestone of Miocene origin, medium height slopes, and a sub-arid climate.
The grapes are pressed and then macerated for approximately 12–14 days at a temperature of 26–28°C. After racking, the wine is decanted into vitrified cement tanks for malolactic fermentation to occur, and then the wine is transferred to new casks where it ages for 24 months. Following this period, the wine is bottled and left to rest in a horizontal position for a further 6 months before it is available for sale.
Store in a cool, dry place away from sources of light.
It is recommended to store the bottles in a horizontal position.
The perfect wine to pair with red meats and aged cheeses.
