In 1946, within the reclaimed Nurra area of Sardinia, bestowed upon farmworkers after the Agrarian Reform in the post-war era, a remarkable journey commenced. The locals, possessing skilled and brave hands, seemed destined to capture the essence of an island region perfectly suited for winemaking. In 1959, a group of one hundred individuals joined forces, forming a cooperative and establishing the renowned Cantina Santa Maria la Palma (Santa Maria la Palma Winery).

The name "Le Bombarde" wine is derived from the beach bearing the same name, where the vineyards of the red grapes Cannonau di Sardegna and Monica di Sardegna thrive to this day. The cannons depicted on the label serve as a powerful symbol, representing the defense and pride of Sardinia's coastal lands, which endured invasions from diverse cultures such as the Aragonese and Spanish throughout the centuries. These cannons stand emblematic of the robust and resolute nature of the vines themselves.

 

Bright with a deep ruby red center. This wine starts with a bouquet of rich strawberry and cinnamon and continues with flavors of jammy strawberry, lilacs and a hint of white pepper. It’s velvety and robust, but finishes with gentle tannins.

100% Grenache
