The Ferruccio Deiana Sileno Riserva Cannonau di Sardegna is a first-class red wine. It has a wonderfully dense, ruby red color. Held at a slight angle, the wine glass reveals a charming garnet-red hue at the edges. If you give it a little air in the wine glass by swirling it, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which can be seen in clear stained glass windows at the edge of the glass. The bouquet of this red wine from Sardinia seduces with hints of mulberry, blackcurrant, blackberry and blueberry. If we explore the aromas further, vanilla, cocoa bean and gingerbread spice are added, boosted by the oak wood influence.
The Ferruccio Deiana Sileno Riserva Cannonau di Sardegna is wonderfully dry for the wine connoisseur. This red wine is never coarse or austere, but round and smooth.

Once again, there are hints of blueberry and mulberry.
Vinification of the Ferruccio Deiana Sileno Riserva Cannonau di Sardegna
This wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, namely Cannonau. Only first-class grapes were used for this exceptionally powerful single-varietal wine from Ferruccio Deiana. The Sileno Riserva Cannonau di Sardegna is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Italian wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of wines from the Old World. The fact that the Cannonau grapes thrive under the influence of a warm climate also has an undeniable influence on the development of the grapes. Among other things, this results in particularly well-ripened grapes and a rather high alcohol content in the wine. After being harvested by hand, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in large oak barrels at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by ageing on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled.
