Gianfranco Manca started off as a baker and eventually took over his uncle’s bakery. Along with the bakery came plots of land with very old vines which had been neglected for years. He set about rehabilitating the old vines and planted a parcel of new vines of Monica and Carignano del Sulcis, the local strain of the famous grape. Although he started making wine in the mid 80’s it wasn’t until 2005 that he was ready to put a label on it and offer his interpretation to the rest of the world.
Alvas (meaning white) is hazy-amber with a subtle nose of orange flowers, verbena, ricard and apricot skin. The wine smells warm, like bread dough just taken out of the oven. Smooth in the mouth the wine picks up notes of apricot jam, ginger and white pepper (from the lees) as well as tannin and a faint nuttiness from the skin contact. In a word, Alvas is gorgeous.
