Giuseppe Sedilesu Sartiu Cannonau di Sardegna 2019
Giuseppe Sedilesu Sartiu Cannonau di Sardegna
Giuseppe Sedilesu Sartiu Cannonau di Sardegna has clear notes of spice and ripe fruit, a dense and fresh palate with delicate and sweet tannins and a simply unique depth. It matches well game, all kind of red meat dishes and mature cheeses.
More than thirty years ago Giuseppe and Grazia purchased their first hectare of vineyard and cultivated it together with their three children. And thank God both the winery and the family have grown over the years. The family-run winery founded by Giuseppe and Grazia is today managed by their three children and their families (daughter Antonietta with her husband Emilio, son Francesco with his wife Rosa, son Salvatore with his wife Mariella and a total number of 13 grandchildren).
Mamoiada is a small Sardinian village situated in the heart of the Barbagia, most of all known for the traditional Mamuthones masks, which represent a significant cultural heritage. The tradition of the masquerades, which has been preserved over thousands of years, is rooted in the sacred rituals of the ancient local population of Mamoiada and is still performed today.
In the area of Mamoiada the Sedilesu winery has got fifteen hectares of vineyards which are mainly cultivated with Cannonau vines trained by the alberello (bush vine) technique. Only a small part, 5% of the wine-growing area, is cultivated with a white grape variety called “Granazza”.
For years they produced only bulk wine, which they sold in the villages close to Mamoiada. Then in 2000, when the children took over the winery, they hit on the idea of bottling and labeling their Cannonau. With this steptheye wanted to find out if the same aromas and the same flavours with which they grew up and which have always been important elements of their lives would also be appreciated by a demanding wine market. It was worth the experiment. During the following 10 years they doubled their wine production and built new cellars.
