Vibrant ruby-red wine with ripe bramble, cherry and spice flavours.

Isola's Cannonau di Sardegna is a dry red wine from Sardinia, Italy. It's 100% Cannonau with 13.5% abv.

Cannonau, also known as Grenache, is Sardinia's pride and joy when it comes to red wines. The grapes for this wine are grown in the Gallura region on the north-east tip of Sardinia. The vines are planted in weathered granite soils around 400m above sea level. After harvest, the juice is fermented on its skins to extract extra character. The resulting wine has light aromas of cherry, chocolate, violets and spice with a floral, mid-weight and juicy palate filled with cherries, strawberries and pepper with a gentle tannin. On the finish there's a light, redcurrant-like tang that feels suitably Italian!

You'll like this if you like... Chianti or unoaked/young Spanish red wines.

Pairs beautifully with: Roast meats including game, pizza, pasta bake, meatballs in tomato sauce or buttery saffron risotto.

Cheese pairing: Mature pecorino or manchego.
