Cannonau Riserva "Carnevale" from the Sardinian winery Sedilesu is produced in the heart of Barbagia. It represents a fairly modern version of this historical grape variety, traditionally grown in almost all countries bordering the Mediterranean. It is a Cannonau, which, thanks to ageing in barriques, acquires a rather international face while retaining the characteristic traits of its terroir of origin.

"Carnevale" is a Cannonau Riserva originating in Mamoiada, one of the absolute best areas for growing Cannonau. The vineyards are located at an altitude between 600 and 800 meters above sea level and can benefit from a cool climate, with significant temperature ranges between day and night. The disintegration of old granite rocks generates soils which are very rich in minerals. These particular pedoclimatic conditions allow to obtain wines of great balance between freshness and alcohol component, always quite high in wines produced with the Grenache vine, called Cannonau in Sardinia. The vines are bush-trained with low yields, less than 40 quintals per hectare. Fermentation is conducted spontaneously, using only indigenous yeasts and with a maceration on the skins of about 20-25 days. The wine rests for 14-16 months in 225 barrels and is bottled without filtering. It is aged for 6 months in the Sedilesu cellar before release for sale.

Cannonau "Carnevale" is a reserve that concentrates in one glass all the best characteristics of the splendid terroir of Mamoiada, dressing them with a less traditional profile and more oriented to modern and international tastes. The wine has an intense ruby red colour with garnet reflections. The nose opens on scents of aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean maquis, soft spices, graphite sensors, red fruit and jam. The sip is warm, soft and rich, with juicy, dense fruit. The tannins are delicate and elegant, and the finish is harmonious and balanced with a pleasant freshness.
