Cannonau Di Sardegna Mamuthone
Top 5% wine in the UK
Blend: 100% Cannonau (Grenache)
From: Italy, Cannonau di Sardegna DOC
By: Sedilesu family @ Cantina Giuseppe Sedilesu
Cannonau grape and wine are the flagship wine of Cantina Giuseppe Sedilesu. Harvested at an altitude between 550 mt to 800 above sea level in the heart of Sardinia. Deep ruby red in colour, the nose reveals intriguing notes of ripened red fruit and spices. The palate, intense with soft tannins and good acidity.
Giuseppe Sedilesu with his wife bought their first vineyard 35 years ago and today in their 70’s they still work in the winery with the help of their three sons and other family members. Mamoiada is the little village where everything began and despite the common idea that Sardinia is only white sandy beaches and hot sunny weather, this area has mild climate with snow in the winter and dry, hot summers. This climatic combination along with the soil creates a perfect environment for the Cannonau grape.
