Giovanni Montisci has earned a cult-like following for his powerful and distinctive Cannonaus from organically farmed old vines grown up to 650 meters elevation on the hillsides of Sardinia. The chilly nights here allow for slow and steady ripening, preserving precious acidity and favoring rich, complex wines perfumed of wild fruit, flowers, Mediterranean herbs, and spices—a truly compelling translation of this extreme terroir, which shines alongside the hearty local cuisine of Sardinia’s mountains. “Barrosu”, his flagship Cannonau, perfectly embodies the rugged beauty of these mountainous highlands, and gives proof that Sardinia is capable of much more than the simple quaffer.
