Rich and powerful red wine made from Sardinia’s ancient grape, Cannonau. Decanter Silver

This unique, UK-exclusive wine is made by a cooperative of four friends in Sorgono, in the remote heartlands of Sardinia. It has a rich and dense flavour, dominated by black fruit and spice. Full bodied and elegant, it benefits from fresh acidity and an excellent long finish.

It is made from 100% Cannonau – perhaps the most ancient grape in the Mediterranean, dating back 3,200 years. Once thought to be a clone of Garnacha, DNA analysis by the University of Pennsylvania found that it is a different species all together. Sardinians are rightfully proud of this iconic grape.
