Sella&Mosca represents the most prestigious production of Sardinian wines. Started over a century ago, the activity was begun by two men from Piedmont, both of whom where great lovers of wine and fascinated by the enchanting and uncontaminated land of Sardinia.
550 hectares of vineyards with state of the art technology and tools and a strong attention to tradition allows the winery to produce high quality wines, unifying tradition with innovation.
Sella&Mosca offers a wide range of wines, from the traditional Terre Bianche Torbato, Monteoro Vermentino di Gallura, Terrerare Carignano del Sulcis and Cannonau di Sardegna, to the famous Marchese di Villamarina (Cabernet Sauvignon), Tanca Farrà (blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cannonau) and Le Arenarie (Sauvignon). Sella&Mosca’s quest to offer new oenological expressions - in which international varieties were combined in blends with indigenous ones - resulted in the production of Medeus, a blend between two native vines, Cannonau and Carignano, and two international vines, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and Thìlion, a blend of Torbato and Sauvignon. These wines interpret the Mediterranean origins and the values of an uncontaminated environment and unite the peculiarity of native vines with the values of international ones.
The company’s experience and the size of its vineyards allowed Sella&Mosca, following a great deal of experimentation, to aim for outstanding quality with Sardinia’s two main indigenous white varieties, Vermentino and Torbato. Cala Reale, Sella&Mosca’s finest expression of Sardinian Vermentino, and Terre Bianche Cuvée 161, the star wine in the company’s group of Torbatos, were launched.
The most recent innovations from Sella&Mosca are Dimonios Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva and Acino M Monica di Sardegna.
Dimonios is a tribute to Sardinian history and a unit of soldiers during the First World War called the “Sassari Brigade”, all of whom came from the Region of Sardinia. This exceptional Unit fought on all of Italy’s fronts earning titles of honour. The men of the Sassari Brigade were known as the “Red Devils” (“Dimonios”) because of the colour of the flashes on their uniforms and of the fearlessness of their attacks. This then, was the name given to Sella&Mosca’s new Cannonau Riserva, because of this anthem’s extraordinary symbolic value and incisiveness and – like the wine to which it has been dedicated – because of its ability to express a land whose character and personality are unique.
With ACINO M a new grape variety, Monica, enriched the family of indigenous varietals.
Acino M is a decidedly interesting style of Monica, “revisited” and interpreted in a modern way; in other words, it is fine, with the fruity hints that are typical of this grape, intense and elegant on the nose and characterized by warm, velvety sensations on the palate.
The Sella&Mosca cellar today offers some of the noblest Sardinian wines, coupling the island’s winemaking tradition with the capacity to best interpret the most recent evolutions in flavours.
The building, that at the beginning of 1900 saw the birth of the activities, today houses the Sella&Mosca wine cellar, a meeting area for cultural exchanges on wines and an interesting museum. Gruppo Campari acquired Sella&Mosca in 2002.
Sella&Mosca is distributed internationally, its main markets are:
