Atlantis is steeped in legend.
It is a legend that has recently been revisited, with theorists now proposing that the Pillars of Hercules, representing the very edge of the known world, did not mark the Strait of Gibraltar, but in fact the Strait of Sicily. Beyond the Pillars lay Atlantis, an island of infinite beauty, which was sunk by Poseidon “in one fatal day and night”. The latest theories, questioning the location of the Pillars of Hercules, place Atlantis where Sardinia now lies. “Crizia” is the Italian name for the first of Plato’s dialogues that mentions the island, and this is what the main wine we produce is named after. In addition to Crizia, we also make “Maju”, a blend classified as a “Colli di Limbara” IGT red wine and produced through separate processing of Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) and Syrah (25%) grapes. The highly fragrant grape must is expertly mixed in precise proportions, resulting in a wine that is the ideal accompaniment for meat dishes and seasoned cheeses. “Maju” (the Sardinian word for the month of May) is a tribute to women. The name also represents the initials of a very special woman and mother, whose wise hands and maternal love are essential to this artisan wine and the rich aromas of tradition it radiates.
