Red Wine Cannonau DOC
The most typical wine of Sardinia
The Cannonau is the wine that perhaps more than any other is associated with Sardinia. The cultivation of the vine has spread throughout the island, but finds his election environment in the inner areas. Recent studies that are still ongoing, show the presence of oenological practices in Sardinia since the nuragic era, and you might assume the presence of Cannonau in Sardinia at the time of the Spanish domination, to which it is thought to date back its introduction.
The Cannonau occupies thirty percent of the planted area of Sardinia, and its cultivation is concentrated to over 70% in the Province of Nuoro. Yields per hectare are never very high, reaching an average of 8 tons. The wine is characterized by a typical and particular fineness of taste and scent, variable from zone to zone. It comes with a good structure and with smell and taste sensations that recall, in various forms, flowers or red fruits, fresh, that veer towards the more mature notes of jam and hot spicy nuances in the type Riserva or liqueur. The Denomination of Controlled Origin qualifies as Cannonau di Sardegna.
