RISERVA DOC CANNONAU DI SARDEGNA
A wine of great value obtained from a careful selection of Cannonau grapes of Sardinia, mostly coming from over 40 years old head-trained bush vines.
VINIFICATION & AGEING
After a slow fermentation on the skins in small steel containers for a period of about 20 days, it matures in French oak barriques for 24 months. A further ageing in bottles lying down for at least 8 months follows.
Magnificent garnet-red hues.
Truly imposing on the nose. A bouquet rich in small ripe red and black fruits, hints of marasca cherry and liquorice enhanced by delicate sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate it is warm, savoury and spicy, all perfectly harmonized by a range of mineral notes. A rich velvety structure is well balanced by its tannic complexity and elegant and gratifying persistence.
It is a wine that pairs very well with the most exclusive and refined cuisine: perfect to accompany cheeses of great structure and flavour or important meat dishes (even better if prepared by macerating the meat with the same wine). Unfiltered wine.
