Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva "'Inu" DOC CONTINI
"Inu" is a Cannonau di Sardegna Doc BIO made from Cannonau grapes and small percentages of other indigenous red grape varieties; the vines of the Contini family, dedicated to wine for 4 generations, amount to well 100 hectares and are divided between the Peninsula of Sinis, Valle del Tirso and Pendici del Monte Arci. It is right near the latter that grapes are grown for the production of this wine, on soils of volcanic origin and favored by a Mediterranean climate with hot and ventilated summers and mild winters. After the manual harvest that takes place in the third decade of September, the crushing takes place with subsequent fermentation with maceration of the skins for 10-15 days and a soft pressing. The aging lasts for 12 months in barriques and tonneaux, then for 6 months in bottle.
