Cannonau (aka Grenache Noir/Garnacha) is the most important and exclusive red wine grape that is thought to have originated in Sardinia. In fact, it is thought to be the oldest variety in the Mediterranean. Poderi Parpinello's San Costantino uses hand-harvested grapes from a selection of the best bunches in their vineyard. Vinification is in stainless steel tanks before a 10 day maceration to extract the desired level of flavours, colour and aromatics. It is then bottle aged before release.
This results in a deeply red coloured wine showing lashings of mature red fruits combined with delicate hints of spice on the nose. The dry and pleasantly flavoured palate is elegant, yet full bodied in style. Try with stews/casseroles, barbecue dishes or East Asian cuisine.
The Parpinello family have run a 15 hectare estate and winery with dedication and passion for three generations. They strive to reflect the Sardinian terroir and reveal the typicity of the wines. Modern winemaking technology is successfully combined with traditional farming methods, resulting in high quality wines with intense aromas and flavours.
