The Cannonau is a 100% Sardinian wine, and grape seeds dating back to 1200 B.C. have been discovered. During that period, the ancient inhabitants of the island, who sailed throughout the Mediterranean, are believed to have contributed to spreading Cannonau to Spain. The ripening period is medium to late (late September). From an agronomic standpoint, Cannonau is a rather vigorous vine with not very high yields but remarkable adaptability, justifying its cultivation in vastly different climatic and soil conditions. Cannonau is produced across the entire territory of Sardinia, excluding unsuitable lands such as excessively calcareous, low-thickness, high-slope soils, those derived from recent alluvial deposits, and hydromorphic soils in coastal areas affected by alkalinization and salinization. The "Cannonau di Sardegna" red wine appears with a more or less intense ruby red color, tending towards orange with aging. It has a pleasant aroma, and its taste is dry and characteristic. Its aroma is notably pronounced in heavy plain soils and sandy coastal areas
