2013 Cannonau

Sardegna Italy


The Olianos winery is located in a shallow valley in south central Sardegna where Stefano Casadei farms some 37 acres sustainably, using horses to plow the vineyards and employing low yields and hand harvesting at full phenolic maturity.  Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts, after which the wine is aged for several months in used barrels and up to a year in steel and bottle.  The result here is a well-balanced 100% Cannonau (Grenache) that explodes with aromas and flavors of small berries along with hints of dark chocolate and tobacco followed by silky tannins and pleasant acidity.  14% ABV CLINE
