2008 Contini "Tonaghe" Cannonau di Sardegna

SKU #1061925

This wine is produced from the traditional, shrub-type Cannonau growing in the Ogliastra and Oliena regions. Over the past few years, with the introduction of more modern production techniques and a greater awareness of the importance of the various phases of vinification, Cannonau has revealed its true potential. This one is intense ruby red in color, with an all-enveloping, persistent perfume and a spicy, full-bodied finish. Excellent when served with grilled red meats, game and well matured, strong flavored cheeses. It ages well over a number of years.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
