Cannonau di Sardegna is a red wine 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.  This one is a unique vision of Cannonau - grapes are harvested earlier, the maceration with the skins is short (five days) so as to make fresh and fruity wines, with cherry and strawberry notes.  Sardegna, Italy
