Hints of small fruit and nuances of rose, a spicy touch and delicate tannins: here is the Cannonau di Sardegna '16 by Antonella Corda.

Antonella Corda

Di Madre in Vigna” (“Mother to vineyard“) is on each bottle, a beautiful tribute to the generational transition between two women. Antonella is part of the Serdiana’s well-known Argiolas family. Some years ago, thanks to a family tradition linked to her mother, she decided to start her own line of wines.

The grapes

So far, three selections, all made in steel vats, have been produced, using the Cannonau, Vermentino and Nuragus typical of the southern part of the island. For the first time this young producer has made it into Italian Wines and right off the bat they take home a Tre Bicchieri, as well as our Up-and-Coming Winery Award.

Cannonau di Sardegna

Their Cannonau di Sardegna is fresh, elegant, light, highly drinkable style that’d being awarded. The nose offers up hints of small fruit and nuances of rose. A spicy touch anticipates delicate tannins and exemplary, deep acidity, thanks to a light, savory streak.
