Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna DOC 2019
Ample and complex bouquet, in which violet, rose, cherry and currant encounter elegant nuances of spice. In the mouth the wine is full, robust, warm and generous yet well balanced, fresh and deep. The finish is persistent, with a silky texture.
A varietal and a wine that symbolizes Sardinia, Cannonau is one of the crown jewels of Sella & Mosca. Cultivated with extra care, it enjoys the warm, sandy soils it grows in, swept clean by the prevailing northeast wind. A wine that expresses intensity and warmth, combining delicate floral and ripe fruit notes with the more classic tones of mediterranean vegetation.
The average age of the wine is 18 years. Fermentation at controlled temperature. Part of the wine ages for 8 month in big barrels, the remaining part ages in stainless steel and cement vats.
