Cannonau/Merlot Blend IGT-‘Serranu’ 2011

£13.99 £11.50

This Serranu 2011 premium quality Sardinian red wine is a hidden gem. It is made from a blend of Cannonau (more commonly known as Grenache), Muristellu and Merlot grapes grown on granite soils 500-600 metres above sea level. Its name is derived from the Spanish word ‘Sierra’, which means mountains. This our favourite wine  and now has a number of dedidcated follwers in the UK.

Deep Red ruby in appearance. It has a delightful bouquet of red fruits and sweet spices. It is full bodied, rounded with elegant tannins, balanced acidity and a long persistent finish. It is best paired with roast lamb in herb crusts, wild boar with apple sauce and hard cheese.
