Kannu Na ‘Um is a word derived from the ancient Assyrian-Babylonian language and its meaning can be translated into “our tree”. The etymological basis of the word Cannonau dates back to this ancient language: kannu (sapling) + na’um (ours).
Already originally the Sardinians with Cannonau (kannu na’um) wanted to understand the vine, a precious plant linked to the historical events of the ancient peoples who inhabited Sardinia centuries and centuries ago.
