History

The Altea Illotto winery was founded in 1992 by an idea of Maurizio Altea and Adele Illotto, agronomists and expert wine and olive oil tasters, with the aim of making quality products using organic farming methods. In 1997 they built the cellar in order to make wine from their own vineyards. In 2000 their first bottle came out.

Description of the farm

Total cultivated area (hectares): 7
Vineyard area: 5.5
The vineyards are located in the countryside of Serdiana (CA) in southern Sardinia, an area suited to the cultivation of vines.
Our wines derive from native vines and natural yeasts, as we are convinced that autochthonous yeasts also contribute to the expression of the territory.

Wines
  • Altea Bianco
    Sibiola IGT.
    exclusively obtained from grapes Nasco and Vermentino of our vineyards in the countryside of Serdiana .
    It is a unique wine of its kind, the Nasco grape is very ancient and now rare on our island. From it, few producers obtain dessert wines, but we vinify it dry, with the addition of a little Vermentino grape. The result is a wine with shades of gold, of great structure, fruity on the nose the first year and then rich in hints of moss and Mediterranean scrub. In the mouth it is long, sapid, marine.
    Particularly suitable as an aperitif and paired with seafood.
  • Papilio
    Sibiola IGT.
    90% Nuragus, 10% Nasco and Vermentino.
  • Altea Rosso
    Sibiola IGT
    From autochthonous grapes, mainly Carignano, Cannonau and Monica, cultivated in our vineyards of Serdiana.
    From the perfect union of these grapes, a particular wine is born, of excellent structure and great elegance, ruby red in color with garnet reflections, with an intense bouquet of wild berries and jams; in the mouth it is pleasantly soft and very balanced, a wine to taste, but above all to drink.
    It pairs well with traditional Sardinian dishes based on meat, aged cheeses, hams and sausages.
