CANNONAU DI SARDEGNA D.O.C. “PENSAMENTU”
The name of this wine, in the Sardinian language, means thinking. This name originated from a poem that friends of winery owners’ father have dedicated to this wine, poetry who have decided to include in the back label.
The concept is that this wine is so good that can give comfort to any kind of pain.
The sensations that you can also try tasting this wine in front of the magnificent panorama of the Gulf of Asinara, which can be viewed from their vineyard, pervaded by the smell of the Mediterranean, can not be anything but positive.
The vineyard is located in Sennori countrysides, in the northwest of Sardinia, and overlooks the beautiful setting of the Asinara Gulf, at an altitude between 250 and 350 meters above sea level.
This wine is ruby red in color, and gives off a pronounced aroma of red fruits and typical Mediterranean aromatic herbs.
There is also a sly note of pepper and a strong but non-invasive mineral filler. The alcohol inside is important (16%) but the level is completely balanced.
Vinification: maceration on the skins for 6/7 days at a controlled temperature, followed by aging in steel drums.
A pure refined steel Cannonau of a true feminine elegance.
A real ‘rarity’ not to be missed … only 4000 bottles produced!
OUR SOMMELIER SAYS
A new entry that goes to further differentiate the range of red wines we offer!
Two young sisters who have faced the challenge of producing (definitely not blindly) a unique niche product.
In addition to faithfully highlight the characteristics and uniqueness of the Cannonau of Sardinia, this Cannonau has got the ability to be a powerful wine, and at the same time it has a great fresh taste: persistence and coolness that continues on the palate and invites to the next sip with an alcohol that remains discreet, despite being in mind, given the gradation declared in the bottle.
This wine surely lends itself to get obsolete pairings to be a red wine of this type: as well as grilled lamb, roasts and mature cheeses, fact I see it very well (why not?) with a nice grilled fish, maybe blue fish with herbs, as evidenced directly by myself. With a really surprising result.
Seeing is believing.
