Tasting note Gabbas Cannonau di Sardegna Dule
Bright red scent, aromatic scent with spices, ripe red fruit and a light touch of spices and oak. The taste starts smoothly and round and develops fragrant and with a balanced, soft aftertaste.
With an annual production of only 70,000 bottles, coming from twenty hectares of vineyard, retired lawyer Giuseppe Gabbas is a small Sardinian producer. The Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso nevertheless calls it 'un grande viticoltore', one of the best cannonau makers on the island. In particular, the refinement and drinkability are mentioned.
Giuseppes wine estate is located just south of Nuoro, the capital of the beautiful mountain region of Barbagia, and benefits from the coolness of the sea breeze and the winds in the mountains. Partly because of this, the grapes ripen long and evenly, so that the tannins in the skins ripen perfectly and taste smooth. Gabbas does not make dark-colored blockbusters, but elegant wines with refinement.
This Dule riserva comes from forty-year-old, naturally worked vineyards. Yields are kept low here, partly through a 'green harvest' in August. Giuseppe then cuts away part of the grapes, so that the grapes that linger ripen better. After harvesting and traditional fermentation, the wine is aged for twelve months in small French oak barrels.
This is a large, Mediterranean wine that will appeal to lovers of, for example, fine châteauneuf-du-pape! After all, the cannonau is the same grape as the French grenache. Drink the wine with a wide range of dishes - such as pork, beef, poultry or feathered game - or as an impressive 'evening wine'.
