Cannonau di Sardegna DOC is an important Sardinian designation based on the Cannonau grapes. There are various types, but the best known is certainly the one vinified in red. This one may also acquire the mention “Riserva” if the wine is aged for at least 2 years, and at least 6 months in wooden barrels. If the grapes come from the historical area of the denomination, the provinces of Nuoro and Ogliastra, the “Classico” specification is allowed.

The territory of the island never exceeds 300 m above sea level, but it is often harsh and with steep slopes. The climate is Mediterranean, with hot and slightly rainy summers, mild winters. The average temperature is high compared to other regions and the excursions between day and night are contained. The wind is an almost constant feature, blowing all year round, both on the coasts and in the hinterland.
