Bovale Sardo (Graciano) is an underrated grape that has been making a comeback in its native Rioja. Korem blends the low-yielding and deeply-colored Bovale Sardo for aroma and acidity, with Carignano for tannin, and Cannonau for fruit and body to achieve an elegant wine of layered complexity.
Korem is a blend of Bovale Sardo, Carignano, and Cannonau, three red grapes with origins in Spain that typify Sardinian viticulture. The wine is a more elegant counterpart to Turriga thanks to the aromatic Bovale Sardo. The label is that of an Ancient Greek coin found in the vineyards of the Argiolas property.
Korem is a wine for refined cookery and unique occasions. In Sardinia, celebrations are often accompanied by spit-roasted meats such as suckling pig, lamb, or kid. Korem is perfect for such occasions which might include antipasti and pastas like semolina gnocchi topped with basil and pecorino, or ravioli stuffed with chard and ricotta.
