Thanks to the very light use of oak, this wine shows the typical aroma profile of the cannonau: aromas of cherries, raspberries and blackberries accompany more complex and delicate notes of roses and white pepper. The palate shows concentration and very delicate tannins with a spicy hint of white pepper on the finish.
Cannonau di Sardegna DOC
Antonella Corda, the granddaughter of the famed viticulturalist Antonio Argiolas, founded her winery in 2010 after finishing her masters in viticulture and winemaking at the prestigious Edmund Mach Foundation. Her approach blends a proud, century-old family tradition of winemaking with ambition and innovation. Antonio, who lived to the age of 104, left Antonella two of his prized vineyards, located around the village of Serdiana, a few kilometres north of Cagliari. The mild climate, water availability and the rich calcareous soils here give the wines a unique character and a signature freshness. Antonella follows a sustainable approach and the vineyards are farmed organically.
The fruit for this wine come from the Mitza S’Ollastu vineyard located between the townships of Serdiana and Ussana to the north of Cagliari. This vineyard sits on the bed of an ancient river and its soil is a mixture of clay, loam, sand and pebbles. This soil ensures the perfect balanced to give the wine a decisive character. Vines are trained with the Guyot system and they are planted at a density of 4,545 vines per hectare.
All grapes were hand picked into small boxes in the first decade of September. After a period of maceration and soft pressing, the grapes were fermented in stainless-steel tanks. Pumping over is carried out using the CO2 pressure, and not with mechanical pumps. The wine was then aged in stainless steel vats and only 10-15% is aged in barriques (two-year-old and new French oak, no and low-toast).
