Saraja Inkibi Cannonau Di Sardegna D.O.C 2021
In the North East hills of Romangia Sardinia comes this fragrant Cannonau aka Grenache. Here it expresses the shallow soils with aromatic red fruits. Blood plum, Morello cherries and pomegranate. A hint of blackberry and vanilla pod with a backdrop of nutmeg, ground ginger and dried paperbark. Acidity is crunchy and there is a nice warmth to the Grenache frame. Tannins are fine grained and dusty and there is a lasting note of autumn leaves and brown mushrooms. This is clearly a wine that speaks of place and a wonderful example of how distinctly the grape showcases its terroir. Drinking well now and will age for another 2-3 years. Pair with wild mushroom risotto and shaved white truffle.
