Gabbas Cannonau di Sardegna Lillove

5 in stock

Lively and fresh with a lovely nose of fresh raspberries, geraniums and violets. Medium in body, but fleshy with soft tannins and a touch of white pepper to go with the deliciously sweet fruit flavours.

Cannonau 95%, Muristellu 5%.

"Gabbas makes what are arguably the three most enjoyable, easy to drink and well-balanced Cannonaus of Sardinia. Never over the top, overripe or excessively high in alcohol, these Cannonaus are always very clean and devoid of the rustic notes that can sometimes plague other examples." Ian D'Agata, Vinous (March 2018)

The Gabbas estate has been part of the Gabbas family for generations.  Winning a string of Gambero Rosso awards, Giuseppe Gabbas is now one of the most renowned winemakers in Sardinia. His wines are best known for being true examples of traditional Sardinian styles. The estate consists of 20 hectares of vines, predominantly Cannonau de Sardegna making up of 80% of their cultivation, alongside Vermentino and another local variety called Muristellu. Muristellu is a red varietal used in small amounts in blending, it gives the wines extra body and depth.
