Nau Cannonau di Sardegna 2017 - MORA & MEMO


Nau Cannonau di Sardegna 2017


A bouncy and ballsy red from Sardinia that really wants you to take it outside.

They’ve called this vegan-friendly wine “Nau”, a diminutive of the grape Cannonau, but there’s nothing small about it beyond its cute stumpy bottle. This vibrant, youthful and completely unoaked has a Tigger-like exuberance, bouncing around with cherry, plum, blackcurrant, wild strawberry, herbes de Provence, violets, freshly roasted coffee and earthy tobacco. And what wines like this do best is pair with barbeques, pizza, tomato-based pasta and boards of salami and mature cheese. The low centre of gravity of Mora & Memo’s Nau Cannonau di Sardegna is another bonus when it comes to al fresco dining – something that we’d highly recommend.

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but the beautiful packaging from Mora & Memo is proof that the same rule does not apply to wine bottles, because what’s inside is phenomenal. They are the realisation of a dream for Elisabetta Pala – whose family make some of the most famous wines on the island. Her estate in the southeast corner of Sardinia – surrounded by the Sette Fratelli mountains and not far from the sea – is wild, charmingly rustic and blessed with wonderful soils.
