Sa Raja Cannonau di Sardegna (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
A fine, perfumed style of Cannonau (Grenache) from a single vineyard in Romangia in northwest Sardinia, an area where the island's most widely planted red grape thrives.
The 100% Cannonau grapes are sourced from relatively low-lying vineyards in the Romangia area. Soils are shallow and range from clay to sand. Grapes are typically hand-harvested at the start of September, and are then destemmed and macerated for 14 days with regular pumping over. Fermentation is in stainless steel at 22-28ºC, and malolactic fermentation takes place too. The wine spends 2 months on fine lees with batonnage, then a further 4 months in stainless steel, before being released after 2 months in bottle.
Perfumed redcurrant and bramble aromas combine with brown spice and warm, earthy notes. Sa Raja Cannonau di Sardegn is bright and fleshy on the palate with juicy red berry and forest fruits balanced by gentle tannins and fresh acidity. A supple, elegant style with fine tannins, bright acidity and a delicate savoury finish.
Perfect with pasta in a lamb ragù.
