  • Delivery Information

The Cannonau grapes are sourced from the Gallura region, in the north-eastern tip of Sardinia. The vines are planted in weathered granite soils around 400m above sea level. Typically rain in May and June is followed by a hot summer, and the grapes are harvested towards the end of October. Fermentation takes place on the skins, followed by refining and bottling.

The Cantina del Vermentino-Monti cooperative was established in 1956 and cultivates 500 ha around Olbia and Monti in northeast Sardinia. This is the islands heartland for quality Vermentino, producing wines of freshness, minerality and depth, as Vermentino di Gallura DOCG, responsible for many of Sardinia's most notable whites, and the more affordable Vermentino di Sardegna DOC. Vines are planted in weathered granite soils up to 450m altitude. This is also a good source of fresh, juicy Cannonau (aka Grenache) for early drinking.

Good but not great

Just enough to be good quality for the value. Happy I tried it. Not in a hurry to buy it again.

Canonau

Very disappointed. Wine is thin and tastes slightly off. Colour is way too light for a Canonau which I really enjoyed in Sardinia.
Will not buy again, shame I have 5 left...
