It’s a Red Wine obtained exclusively from Cannonau grapes from 30 year old vineyards located in Oddoène valley, territory of Dorgali (NU), inside Gennargentu National Park, Sardinia.
The soils where they grows are very differents: sand from granite rocks and limestone. The grapes comes from organically managed vineyards, that gives maximum 1 kg of yeld for any plants. Grape harvesting is done manually in September, the grapes are placed in plastic boxes of maximum 9 kg of weight. In the cellar the grapes are destemmed and crushed. When the maceration ends, about in 12 days, with a frequent replenishment, the wine is transferred and shared between steel tanks at controlled temperature and oak barrels. Vinification continue for 18 months in the same containers with frequent bâtonnage and then the wine is bottled.
Cannonau di Sardegna DOC, Red 2017
Wine with intense ruby red colour, clear, typical of Cannonau grapes processed in purity. In the glass, it is consistent and pleasant.
In the nose is immediately interesting, with fragrances that
remember raspberry, plum, pink pepper, and rose petals. A fine balsamic and light vanilla feeling close the aromatic part. Low perception of alcohol.
In the mouth is warm, soft, balanced and fruity with moderate and fine tannins , in line with the structure of the wine. Right acidity and minerality give freshness and make this wine elegant and easy to drink.
Wine rich in taste, complex but not difficult,soft and harmonious. Its “young” character implies that it will have a very long-life, which means that it will be
more appreciated in the years to come.
Perfect with typical Sardinian and Mediterranen appetizer like ham, salami and cheese, every kind of patè and wild meat. First courses with red sauces like Bolognese or with wild meat sauces. We suggest to try with Pork grilled meat, the king of typical Sardinian food! Perfect with Pecorino Sardo cheese and Carasau bread.
