The Cannonau di Sardegna DOC strongly expresses the typical notes of the Mediterranean scrub on the nose, above all myrtle and licorice. In the mouth it is complex and elegant and ends in a tannic and savory finish.

As part of the recovery of practices linked to tradition, today we are talking about aging in amphora, an aspect of winemaking that is having many acolytes. And while it seems like a trendy and niche practice to some, it's actually paying off. And, above all, it has its roots in a very distant past.
The terracotta amphora, in fact, was already used as a vessel for transporting wine in Armenia eight thousand years before Christ. From about 200 BC it also became a vessel for the fermentation of wine.
