Tasting note Gabbas Cannonau di Sardegna Dule
Bright red scent, aromatic scent with herbs, ripe red fruit and a light touch of spices and oak. The taste sets in smoothly and round and develops fragrant and with a balanced, soft aftertaste.
With an annual production of only 70,000 bottles from 20 hectares of vineyard, retired lawyer Giuseppe Gabbas is a small Sardinian producer. The Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso nevertheless calls it 'un grande viticoltore', which is one of the best cannona-makers on the island. In particular, the refinement and drinkability are mentioned.
Giuseppe's wine estate is located just south of Nuoro, the capital of the beautiful Barbagia mountain region, and benefits from the coolness of the sea breezes and the downwind winds in the mountains. Partly because of this, the grapes ripen for a long time and evenly, so that the tannins in the skin ripen perfectly and taste smoothly. Gabbas does not make dark-colored blockbusters, but elegant wines with refinement.
This Dule riserva comes from forty year old, naturally cultivated vineyards. Here, the yield is kept low, partly due to a 'green harvest' in August. Giuseppe then cuts away some of the grapes, making the grapes that remain more ripe. After the harvest and traditional fermentation, it is matured for 12 months in small barrels made of French oak.
This is a great, Mediterranean wine that will appeal to lovers of fine châteauneuf-du-pape, for example! After all, the cannonau is the same grape as the French grenache. Drink the wine with a wide variety of dishes - such as pork, beef, poultry or game birds - or as an impressive 'evening wine'.
