Antonella Corda, Cannonau di Sardegna, 2020
Region: Sardinia, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Thanks to the very light use of oak, this wine shows the typical aroma profile of the Cannonau: aromas of cherries, raspberries and blackberries accompany more complex and delicate notes of roses and white pepper. The palate shows concentration and very delicate tannins with a spicy hint of white pepper on the finish.
The fruit for this wine come from the Mitza S'Ollastu vineyard located between the townships of Serdiana and Ussana to the north of Cagliari. This vineyard sits on the bed of an ancient river and its soil is a mixture of clay, loam, sand and pebbles. This soil ensures the perfect balance to give the wine a decisive character. Vines are trained with the Guyot system and they are planted at a density of 4,545 vines per hectare.
Antonella Corda, the granddaughter of the famed viticulturalist Antonio Argiolas, founded her winery in 2010 after finishing her masters in viticulture and winemaking at the prestigious Edmund Mach Foundation. Her approach blends a proud, century-old family tradition of winemaking with ambition and innovation.
