Cannonau di Sardegna wine

Cannonau di Sardegna grapes on the vine - Siddura vineyard, Sardinia, Italy

Cannonau wine comes from Sardinia, an Italian island that's famous for the long life span of its locals. They live longer than anyone else in Europe, and their diet – which wine plays a big role in – is rumoured to be the key. The grape variety itself is ancient too, at 3,200 years old, making it the oldest in the Mediterranean.

Cannonau is mainly used to make powerful red wines. These are usually aged for two or more years, spending a minimum of six months in the barrel to soften their tannins.

What does Cannonau di Sardegna taste like? It has deliciously ripe flavours of cranberry, plum and tobacco underpinned by rich notes of coffee, chocolate and white spice from its time in barrel. High levels of alcohol and tannins make Cannonau di Sardegna is a prime wine for ageing.
