Cannonau di Sardegna is a DOC from the Italian island of Sardinia. It is made from Cannonau, the local name for the Grenache – one of Sardinia's most successful wine grapes.
Grenache (Garnacha)/Cannonau is a red-wine grape grown extensively in France, Spain, Australia and the United States. It is particularly versatile both in the vineyard and the winery, which may explain why it is one of the most widely distributed grapes in the world.
The vines are grown on south-east facing vineyards at altitudes up to 500 metres above sea level, maximising exposure to sunlight. Soils are mostly schistous and calcareous. The vines are 30 years old on average, trained to the Guyot system and planted to a density of 4,500 plants per hectare.
Fermentation of wine takes place in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel vats. Ageing take place in a combination of stainless steel and 10 hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months.
