Vinification for the Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva of Sella & Mosca
Cannonau is the most famous grape variety in Sardinia and also known under the synonyms Grenache or Alicante.
The Cannonau vine finds ideal conditions for its growth both on the warm, sandy soils of the Sardinian coast and in the rough, rocky mountains inland. It is cultivated in the wineries of Sella&Mosca in the south-eastern area, where Gregale from the north-east blows
The grated and crushed grapes are subjected to cold leaching for at least 3 days in order to allow the extraction of the dyes and tannins from the husks which promote the process of long storage in oak barrels. Fermentation at a temperature of 25-28 ° Celsius takes about 12 days.
The red wine is then stored for two years in traditional Slavonian oak barrels. After further ageing in the bottle, the wine reaches its full maturity.
