    Things to know about
    Cannonau
     

    The grape variety came to Sardinia with the Spaniards and is identical to the Garnacha Tinta. All Sardinia is included in the DOC Cannonau di Sardegna for red wine and rosé. A total of approx. 6,200 hectares. Does the label also say "Classico"then the Cannonau (or in dialect also Cannonao) is from the Nuoro region including Ogliastra.

    The Spaniard among the Sardinians.

    There are still three sub-zones allowed on the label: Capo Ferrato in the south near the capital Cagliari, Cannonau di Sardegna Jerzu comes from the east located barren mountain region around the municipality Jerzu near the magnificent tourist regions around Tortoli - and the region around the city Oliena, near the almost 1500m high towering mountains of the Supramonte mountains. Here the Cannonau is also called Nepente di Oliena, so the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio named it in his works, presumably after an opium-like intoxicant of the Greeks.

    Blue Velvet.

    Different varieties are pressed: Rosso, Riserva, Rosato, Passito and Liquoroso. Cannonau di Sardegna Classico DOC must contain 90% Cannonau, all others at least 85%. The rest may consist of other red wine varieties, usually the blending partners are also autochthonous grape varieties such as Bovale Sardo, Malvasia Nera and Carignano. Cannonau di Sardegna are mostly powerfully structured, delicately velvety red wines with aromas from dark cherries to plums and a typical delicate musk spice. Some of the best Cannonau blends are marketed under the name Isola dei Nuraghi IGT. In addition to Sardinia, there is a small area in Veneto where a variety of Cannonau produces very elegant and mineral wines, called the hills of Vicenza, Colli Berici. The Cannonau here is called Tai Rosso, formerly Tocai Rosso. SUPERIORE.DE
