Mora & Memo Nau Cannonau di Sardegna 2019 from 8wines
Drink now or cellar for up to 8 years. No need to decant before serving. The Mora & Memo wine label expresses the true passion that Elisabetta Pala has for her native Sardinia and her inspired wines which capture the essence of the island’s magical terroir and characterful indigenous grape varieties. Elisabetta’s vineyards are located in the south-eastern corner of the island where wine has been made for centuries on the stunning rolling hills and prized limestone soils. This elegant Cannonau is made from arguably Sardinia’s best-known black grape variety which typically produces robust yet balanced red wines with plenty of savoury flavours. The grapes are grown just a few kilometres from the sea and fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve plenty of natural freshness and aromatics from the variety. The next step is to age the wine for 6 months in the tank and another 3 months in the bottle. Once you pour out a glass or two, you’ll immediately notice the bright ruby red hue and enticing notes of red berries, spice, and dried herbs. The first sip reveals subtle tannins, a medium body, and plenty of dark fruit flavours including some sour black cherry notes which bring a pleasant balance. The finish is long and structured, with hints of cedar, oregano and fruit lingering on the tongue.
