Tenuta l'Ariosa

Cannonau Assolo

In 1926 Tenuta L’Ariosa has found its home in the idyllic, unspoiled hinterland of the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Here the climatically favored vineyards of the Rau brothers are ideal for the exclusively autochthonous grape varieties that live in symbiosis with the Mediterranean flora.

The grapes for the production of wines with the protected denomination “Cannonau” must be grown in Sardinia. The addition „Classico“ can only be used for vines grown in the provinces of Nuoro and Ogliastra with their three subzones. The goal of the Tenuta L’Ariosa is to extract the full potential of the Cannonau using the best techniques.
