Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The beautiful island of Sardinia is mostly known for crisp, correct Vermentino, but they also make red wine. Cannonau (the local name for Grenache, grown very successfully also in Spain and southern France) is the best known example. It shows broad, attractive red-fruit notes with some wild herbs and a relatively soft texture; very versatile food wine, I would pair this with everything from a range of pasta dishes to salmon, or roast chicken. Great everyday red.
