2021 Bantu Cannonau Di Sardegna, Antichi Poderi Jerzu
Bantu is a young and fresh expression of the classic Sardinian variety, Cannonau (more commonly known as Grenache). Ruby red with generous raspberry, cherry and strawberry, subtle spice and supple tannins.
Antichi Poderi Jerzu is a co-operative based in the small village of Jerzu in the historical Ogliastra region on the east coast of Sardinia. Jerzu is a remote and untouched village that maintains many of its age-old traditions. This may have something to do with the fact that Jerzu is believed to be the village with the world record ratio of centenarians to population!
