Santadi Noras Cannonnau de Sardegna DOC 2017 Red Wine – Sardinia Italy

S$56.00

90% Cannonau and 10% Carignano. Cannonau, long believed to be a variety of Spanish Garnacha, was not only recently proven to be ampelographically distinct and native to Sardinia; it may well have been one of the most ancient wines in the western Mediterranean.

Santadi’s delightful version was named after Nora, Sardinia’s very first city, founded on the island’s southern seaboard around 1000-1500 BC, and Norax, a mythical Sardinian hero who came from the sea.

Perfectly ripened grapes are de-stalked and soft-pressed, fermenting for 12-14 days in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperatures. Aged 6 months in barrique and 6 months in bottle.

Tasting notes: Intense ruby-red color tending towards garnet. Mediterranean aromas on the complex nose, along with notes of ripe blackberry, blueberry, sweet spice, tobacco and chocolate. A warm, velvety palate with unusually intense yet soft tannins.

Serving temperature: Best served at 14 -16 °C (57.2 – 60.8 °F).
Food pairings: Structured dishes, roasts, grilled meat and fish, game and cheese.
Winemaker: Riccardo Curreli – Consultant: Giorgio Marone
