PICCI’ 2014


This is a profoundly evocative declination of Cannonau from Sardinian natural wine icon Gianfranco Manca, the name being a word game recalling both the Italian Communist party’s name and a bird’s song. It’s 100% Cannonau from a selection of biodynamically farmed old vines in different parcels around the village of Nurri. Wildly fermented, it sees nothing added or taken away and is bottled with no fining, filtration or added SO2. Gianfranco’s dream vision for this wine: “a cliff facing the sea, marine breezes and brine, officinal herbs of Mediterranean garrigue”. Blackcurrants with blood orange rind, Calvados, fried sage and chestnuts.
