The beautiful estate of Mora & Memo sits high in the hills in the south east of Sardinia just a few kilometres from the sea. Focused on the indigenous varieties of Cannanou and Vermentino, the combination of old vineyards with minimal intervention and a delicate touch to the winemaking results in elegant, vibrant and mineral wines. Taking the reins from her father running this small scale winery is Elisabetta who focusses on producing wine representative of the island terroir, executed in a modern way.

The vineyards average 30 years of age with vines planted on a south, south east exposure on limestone and clay hillsides around 200 to 200m above sea level. Maceration is on the skins with selected yeasts for about 8-10 days at controlled temperature. After the maceration, fermentation continues in stainless steel vats. At the end of fermentation, the wine continues to refine in stainless steel vats for about six months at the end of the ageing process the wine goes into bottle for three months before its release.  There is no oak treatment on this wine.

The result is an intense ruby ​​red colour with violet reflections, impenetrable. Bouquet of red berries and spices and coffee. Smooth and elegant tannins in a great structure and complexity.

Try with salami antipasti, pasta dishes with tasty sauces, red meats, mature cheeses.

89 Points Robert Parker

The refreshing 2016 Cannonau di Sardegna Nau (packaged in the estate's characteristic squat bottle) is a vibrant and youthful red to pair with roasted chicken or pork chops. The bouquet offers balance and elegance with linear fruit tones of black cherry, plum and cassis. There is some tobacco and spice on the finish, but those flavors play distant supporting roles. Drink this wine within the next 2-3 years, when all that vibrant primary fruit is still intact.
