This rich and intense Riserva is an excellent example of Cannonau, produced from the best grapes of the vineyard. Decanter Silver Medal
This wine is made from 100% Cannonau, the iconic black grape of Sardinia. Cannonau has become famous recently because it is super-charged with anti-oxidants. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 26-28°C to maximise the extraction of tannins and colour. The wine was matured sur lie to develop a more complex flavour and rich texture. To avoid overpowering the fresh and authentic aromas of Cannonau, Siddùra aged the wine for 24 months in large oak barrels.
Located in the north of Sardinia, Siddùra is recognised as one of the highest-achieving Italian wineries. As well as planting Sardinia’s signature grapes, Cannonau and Vermentino, they also grow Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Every year since 2013 they have won Decanter Gold, Silver, Bronze and Platinum medals – as well as countless awards in Germany, Belgium, Austria and other countries.
Tasting notes: Deep ruby colour, with rich and pronounced aromas of ripe black plum and cherry complemented by aromatic herbs such as sage and thyme. This wine is dry with high acidity, a medium body, and silky tannins which are smoothed by delicate ageing.
Ageing potential: 12 years.
