Cannonau, the most widely planted grape in all of Sardinia, is said to have originated in Spain. It makes sense. Over the centuries, Sardinia has been visited by people from many other places, some of whom have put down roots and called it home, Spainards included. The Loi family may not think of themselves as “natural wine producers”, they are as natural as it gets in their approach to keeping with the harmony of the Earth. This wine is spicy, smokey, dusty and fleshy, all at once. We think you’d do well to keep with the winemaker’s own tradition and roast a suckling pig, but the truth is that it’ll do great in tandem with any and all autumn dishes that you’ll cook on a low heat for a long time.
