Aging: The wine is matured 18 months in small French oak casks, followed by a further 12 months in large oak barrels. After bottling, it is aged an additional 18 months prior to release.

Badde Nigolosu Cannonau 100% 2010 17% Cannonau is an indigenous Sardinian grape variety. Until a few years ago, it was thought that cannonau was simply a different name for the French grenache, the Spanish garnacha, and the Veneto’s tocai rosso. Finally, however, instead of relying on presumptions, historic-social and in particular scientific studies have been carried out recently that have underlined two crucial facts. First, cannonau and grenache share in common only 82% of their genetic makeup (Universitá di Sassari Nieddu, ET AL. C.S.). Second, cannonau arose in Sardinia before it appeared in the rest of Europe. There are numerous official documents that attest to this. In one dating to 1549, the notary Bernardino Coni of Cagliari mentions cannonau, while the term garnacha, referring to a Spanish red wine, comes a full two centuries later.

It is made in the Veneto region of north-eastern Italy and is one of the region's most idiosyncratic wines.

They are picked in whole bunches and kept in drying rooms (with warm temperatures and low humidity) for anywhere from three weeks to three months.
