  • Pusole, Cannonau di Sardegna DOC

Lorenzo Pusole, Cannonau di Sardegna DOC 2014

Quick Overview

Our first from Sardinia: a young, fruity Cannonau – also known as Grenache – with intense aromas of wild strawberries, blackberries, redcurrant and pomegranate, underlying scents of myrtle, aloe and geranium and subtle balsamic hints of eucalyptus and liquorice. It's full-bodied and smooth, with velvety tannins, a lively acidity and a long-lasting finish.

Further Details

The family-owned artisan winery Pusole in eastern Sardinia is situated in the Ogliastra region whose varied terrain stretches from beautiful seaside to mountains over 1,100 metres high.

Here, for four generations, the Pusole family has cultivated its land, producing wine, corn and olive oil, in addition to breeding razza sarda, a local species of semi-wild pigs. Today the family business is run by siblings Loredana, Lorenzo and Roberto. In their vineyards they cultivate only Cannonau, the traditional variety of the region, using traditional and natural farming methods, with no use of herbicides and pesticides, no irrigation and no use of chemical products. The soils are worked often and weeds controlled by inviting herds of sheep into the vineyards. Respect for nature is a key idea at Pusole.Ploughing at Pusole

As Cannonau is a rather vigorous grape variety in terms of fruit production, the grapes are thinned in pre-summer to leave approximately 1-1½ kilos of grapes per plant. In the cellars the aim is to preserve the true character of the wines as shaped by the soil and the vintage. Only indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation, and temperatures are controlled exclusively by airing the must. The ultimate aim at Pusole is to develop single vineyard expressions of Cannonau, reflecting the diversity of each different parcel of vines, including one tiny parcel of vines more than eighty years old.
