‘Opale’ is pale golden yellow with citrus highlights. There are complex aromas of ripe fruit, stewed apples, and jasmine on the nose with hints of vanilla and English toffee. It is full-bodied and well-balanced on the palate with a silky texture that comes from a good balance of acidity and minerality. It has a long and clean finish. Pairs will with savory pasta dishes, grilled fatty fishes, light meats, and medium-aged cheeses.
The Mesa winery, owned by Gavino Sanna, Italy’s most celebrated advertising professional, represents the beauty and goodness of Sardinia—a celebration of the island’s generosity and culture expressed through one of its most noble treasures—wine. The estate is made up of 70 hectares of vineyards that focus largely on production of native Sardegna grape varieties. They are planted in the valley which shelters the vines from the surrounding sea winds. The winery was designed to ensure that both the grapes and the wines are treated with the deepest respect, using natural gravity flow production techniques instead of pumps.
