Cannonau di Sardegna D.O.C. 2018
Red wine from Italy
The young winemaker Antonella Corda from Sardinia is the new discovery of the Italian wine scene, who received the coveted 3 glasses from Gambero Rosso twice in a row for the 2016 and 2017 vintages of her Cannonau. This Cannonau comes from the Mitza S’ollastu vineyard on the Rio Mannu. The permeable, well-ventilated soil is a mixture of sand, clay, limestone and gravel and, together with the mild Mediterranean climate and the consistently light wind, ensures perfectly ripened, healthy grapes and the necessary balance of fruit and tannins to give the wine its varietal character. The garnet red of this Cannonau prepares the nose for an intense fruit bouquet. The taste is dominated by a fruity body. The tannins are pleasantly soft and the finish is long and elegant.

The CANNONAU grape variety is actually identical to the Spanish Grenache grape variety. It is believed that it was brought to Sardinia by the Spaniards. The wine made from the Cannonau grape is poor in tannins and color. It can therefore deliver good fruity wines. Under extreme climatic conditions (drought, heat, wind) and with very low yields, the Cannonau also delivers concentrated, extremely storable red wines. Perfect for Sardinia.
