||Native vine Sardo. Until a few years ago it was believed that the Cannonau was a different way to call the Grenache French, Spanish Garnacha and Tocai Rosso Veneto. Finally, in recent years rather than relying on assumptions have been made of the historical and social studies and especially in the sciences have highlighted two fundamental aspects: a) the Cannonau Grenache and share only 82% of the genetic (University of Sassari Nieddu, ET AL . CS), b) Cannonau originated in Sardinia before the rest of Europe. There are many official documents testifying that. One of these, the act of the notary Bernardino cones Cagliari in a deed of 1549 mentions the wine Cannonau, Garnacha while the term, refers to a Spanish red wine, appears only two centuries later. The Cannonazo of Seville is a vine that does not exist. For years it was thought that the Cannonau derived from the grape, but it was only a clerical error in the "Canocazo" Andalucian white grape.
