Winemaker Notes
Tenute Smeralda is a young agricultural company founded as a continuation of the Cocco Francesca company, which has been operating in the wine-growing sector for about 50 years. The company is located in Donori, South Sardinia, in the Parteolla area, which, thanks to its microclimate, is particularly suitable for the cultivation of native vineyards, such as Vermentino and Cannonau. The latter is known for its high content of procyanidins, a powerful antioxidant and known as the elixir of life.
Food & Wine Pairing
Rubinus is the perfect match for flavorful spicy red meat, game and seasoned cheeses.
