Cannonau di Sardegna “Le Anfore” Elena Casadei DOC 2016


Wine refined in amphora, the large terracotta pots used in antiquity as containers for wines but also for fermentation. The Casadei are among those who have sensed and rediscovered the potential of this method, convinced that the amphora enhances the characteristics of the grape. In fact, during his travels in the Caucasus he comes into contact with this traditional method and is passionate about the typical amphoras of Georgia. He decides to bring back some of them to Tuscany to begin his experiments here. But it is thanks to the determination of the young daughter Elena that the Le Anfore line is born. Thus wines with a great personality are born.
