Cannonau di Sardegna DOC Riserva - Kuentu Red 6 x 75cl

  • Product description

    A wine of great value obtained from a careful selection of Cannonau grapes of Sardinia, mostly coming from over 40 years old head-trained bush vines. After a slow fermentation on the skins in small steel containers for a period of about 20 days, it matures in French oak barriques for 24 months. A further ageing in bottles lying down for at least 8 months follows.


    Truly imposing on the nose. A bouquet rich in small ripe red and black fruits, hints of marasca cherry and liquorice enhanced by delicate sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate it is warm, savoury and spicy, all perfectly harmonized by a range of mineral notes. A rich velvety structure is well balanced by its tannic complexity and elegant and gratifying persistence.

  • About the brand

    The Atha Ruja vineyards are located a few km from Dorgali, within the National Park of the Gulf of Orosei and Gennargentu, in the heart of the Oddoene Valley, an area traditionally devoted to viticulture and known as one of the cru areas for the Sardinian vine par excellence: Cannonau.


    We are the guardians of a still uncontaminated area and we want to preserve it by fully adhering to the rules of organic farming. An original core of Mediterranean scrub still thrives in the middle of the vineyard, which is in part cultivated in head-trained bush vines over fifty years old, and in part as spurred cordons with six thousand plants per hectare. The selective thinning helps us to balance the plant by facilitating the appropriate ripening of the grapes and to contain the yield, thus preserving over the years our vines’ superior and uniform quality.
