||The Cannonau vine thrives all over Sardinia but it is on the warm, sandy soils of the coast that it has found an exceptionally favourable environment. At Tenute Sella&Mosca, Cannonau is grown in the south-east quadrant and on other small plots that have been identified as particularly suitable for the variety.
||The grapes are very carefully crushed and destemmed before undergoing low temperature pre-fermentation skin contact to encourage the extraction of colour compounds and aroma precursors. Fermentation on the skins is mainly at a temperature of 25°C, which rises to 28–30°C at the end of the process.
||Complex, in several distinct stages, including periods in traditional Slavonian oak casks, steel and cement vats, concluding with ageing in bottle.The perfect partner for Sardinia’s classic meat dishes, especially “porcetto”, roast suckling pig.
