When Nathan Gottesdiener and Massimo Ruggero landed in Lugosanto, near Olbia, they were immersed in a forest dotted with rural churches, small settlements of the nuraghic era and shrubs of myrtle, bush and broom.
Seduced by the suggestion of the place, the two members decided that that would be the perfect place to carry on their oenological project. The old structures are retrieved and the design of a modern underground cellar, which has the same roof as the forest itself, slowly takes life; the first 12 hectares planted in Vermentino are joined by Cannonau, Cangulari, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, to reach the current 37 hectares.
Turning point is the arrival in the cellar of Dino Dini, enologist student of Giacomo Tachis and Riccardo Cotarella. In 2012 finally comes the first vintage and each of the 7 wines that comes forth is given a name linked to the ancient Gallurese dialect: Spèra "beam of light", Maìa "magic", Fòla "fairy tale", or even Etruscan like Bèru "Noble", Érema "small plant" and Tiros "wine". For this year we leave Maia and Tiros maturing in the cellar, but we enjoy a great Limited Edition of Eremo, where Cannonau leaves the Cagnulari and embraces the Cabernet Sauvignon.
