CANNONAU DI SARDEGNA DOC RISERVA
Redìt, Cannonau di Sardegna DOC Riserva, is a prestigious wine with an extraordinary taste. A refined bottle, produced from carefully selected Cannonau grapes and harvested by hand. It is left to age for 12 months in medium-toasted French oak barrels of 500 liters (tonneaux): thanks to this passage in wood and this slow micro-oxygenation, the Redìt Cannonau di Sardegna DOC acquires gustatory and aromatic complexity. It has an intense aroma and taste, with hints that recall red fruit and Mediterranean scrub, full-bodied and persistent but at the same time delicate. An extraordinary expression of the most representative grape of Sardinia.
