Trexenta, Sardinia

A guaranteed crowd-pleaser, which really proves you don't need to rely on international grape varieties to appeal to a broad spectrum of palates. From two indigenous varietals - Cannonau and Carignano, this Sardinian red shows the former’s ripe fruit and soft, juicy tannins allied to a spicy, leathery complexity, with cardamon, resin and woodsmoke notes typical of the latter. A hedonist's wine, redolent of warm summers in Rousillon (where clones of the same two grapes are better known as Grenache and Carignan).  This is always one of our most popular wines at tastings...

The Trexenta estate

This co-operative, in the Cagliari province, produces good wines from the indigenous Vermentino and Cannonau and Carignano grapes. Continuing experiments with different blends have resulted in some vintage variation over the years, but the wines are always clean, ripe and fruit-driven.
