Saragat Cannonau 2020

Cannonau di Sardegna DOC

50-60 year old vines compose the core of Atzei’s Cannonau, lending a notable strength and concentration to the wine. The thoughtful winemaking rounds out the body and provides a surprisingly fresh take on this well respected variety.


As the grapes are sourced from a number of vineyards across the area of Mogoro, the wine expresses a range of elevations, exposures, soil types, and micro-climates. Coastal vineyards provide acidity and a refreshing saline character, while further inland the wines show more ripeness and structure. Soils are composed mostly of sand and volcanic sediment.


Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, 10 day maceration, short stay in stainless steel

Tasting Note

Intense aromatic structure of ripe red fruits like cherry and blackberry, but also flowers such as violet and dried rose. In the mouth it immediately reveals an elegant, velvety texture. The tannins are well integrated and the balanced acidity accompanies the wine in the persistent finish.

Saragat Vermentino

Isola dei Nuraghi IGP

Vermentino is synonymous with Sardinian wine, and Atzei’s take on it shows how enjoyable the varietal can be. Blending coastal vineyards with higher elevation sites provides simultaneous refreshment and depth.

Saragat Monica

Monica di Sardegna DOC

While generally not vinified as a mono-varietal, Atzei found their sources of Monica to be exemplary on their own. One of Sardinia’s most widely planted varietals, the style is refreshing and uplifting, with a brief period in small format oak providing an extra layer of body and complexity.
