Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna DOC 2019
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.
