Tasting note Gabbas Cannonau di Sardegna Dule
Bright red in smell, aromatic in aroma with spices, ripe red fruit and a light touch of spices and oak. The palate starts smooth and round and develops fragrant and with a balanced, soft aftertaste.
With an annual production of only 70,000 bottles from twenty hectares of vineyard, retired lawyer Giuseppe Gabbas is a small Sardinian producer. The Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso nevertheless calls him 'un grande viticoltore', one of the best cannonaum makers on the island. Particularly 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 mountain winds. Partly because of this, the grapes ripen long and evenly, so that the tannins in the skin are perfectly ripe and taste smooth. Gabbas does not make dark-colored blockbusters, but elegant wines with refinement.
This Dule riserva comes from 40 years old, naturally cultivated vineyards. Here returns are kept low, partly due to a 'green harvest' in August. Giuseppe then cuts away some of the grapes, making the grapes that linger better ripen. After harvesting and traditional fermentation, it is aged for 12 months in small French oak barrels.
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 range of dishes - such as pork, beef, poultry or game birds - or as an impressive 'evening wine'.
