Cannonau is the red wine that perhaps best represents Sardinia, but it cannot be stated with certainty that its grape variety is indigenous. Its origins are uncertain and could be Spanish. In fact, this grape is genetically the same as Alicante and Tocai Rosso and belongs to the same family as Grenache. Nevertheless, it has found its birthplace on the Italian island, and today covers as much as 20% of the entire vine-growing area, giving life to enological expressions of a full-bodied and structured character, traditionally produced in the Nuoro, Ogliastra and Cagliari areas. Thanks to its rich, concentrated aromatic profile and its warm, Mediterranean personality, it is now considered one of the island's enological symbols.
