SARDO Cannonau di Sardegna

  

The grapes are hand picked at the first harvest in early October, and placed in small crates in order to retain the juices and flavors of the fruit, then destemmed and cold macerated on the skins in glass lined cement tanks for 3 weeks. The juice is vinified in small stainless steel tanks for about 12 months followed by mild filtration and an additional 3 months rest in the bottle before release.  This is a beautiful ruby red wine with intense earthy aromas of pomegranate and sweet violets. It has a well-balanced, warm, elegant taste that pairs well with grilled red meat, roasted game and aged dry cheeses.  Serve at room temperature.
