- Cannonau di Sardegna is certainly the most famous and most popular red wine in Sardinia. Not surprising since it is the most common grape variety on the island, with nearly 30% of Sardinian wine production. It is actually a variety of Grenache that was imported in the 14th century, at the beginning of Spanish colonisation of Sardinia. Today, Cannonau is an appellation of origin (DOC) and Maimone is considered among the best. The maceration takes place with the skins, at a temperature of 26 ° to 28 ° C. After vinification, Maimone is transferred to small oak barrels where it is aged for 6-8 months, depending on the vintage.
Corash is the name given by the Cantina Sociale della Vernaccia Oristano, in Sardinia, to Cannonau Riserva, in memory of a small Roman village which has now disappeared. The Cannonau is the best known and most widespread grape on the island, making up almost 30% of the Sardinian wine production. In fact, it is a variety of Grenache that was imported in the 14th century, at the beginning of the Spanish colonization of Sardinia.
