Description

PRODUCTION
With Second World War in full swing, able men were all at the front while, in the countryside, young boys and retired men were working to help families survive. Due to the available workforce, production was quite limited. Despite this, the government enforced the requisition of foodstuffs, with the immediate result being the birth of the black market. Consequently, it became necessary to hide the real production of various goods. Exchanged in wooden containers with a capacity of 50 litres, wine was hidden among shrubs in the countryside. In Sardinia, helichrysum shrubs were used. That idea worked well during the cold months, but during the summer the wine acquired not only the helichrysum scent but also a high alcohol content and a strong bitter note. That became a serious problem because nobody wanted such a bitter product. Despite people’s best efforts, it wasn’t possible to understand what happened at the time. The smuggled wine continued to be exchanged, but during winter months only.

Multiple aromas of the maquis with a predominance of senecio.
