Cannonau is better known as Grenache. The shorter maceration period contributes to the more restrained style, not typical of Cannonau.

Hand-harvested and fermented without the use of commercial yeasts in stainless steel tanks with a maceration period of about 14 days. The wine ages in steel tanks for 8-12 months before being bottled without fining or filtration.

Mario Bagella is a second generation winemaker, and his family has been growing grapes on Sardinia for over 75 years. The Bagella’s farm is roughly 12.5 acres in Sorso on land that overlooks the sea. Their vines are on average 80-90 years old. Mario oversaw the recent conversion from conventional farming to organic.
