Welcome to the land of longevity.

Land of Longevity

Ogliastra has one of the most long-lived populations of the world.

In fact this area has a high number of centenarians and has been elected one of the five Blue Zones of the world. This record is due to the DNA combined with environmental, alimentary and socio-cultural conditions. Meeting ultra-eight-year-old people daily looking after the vineyard is not uncommon. This is an evidence of the connection that goes beyond the time.

The land of the centenarians can boast even a centuries-old winemaking tradition. This is in fact the land of Cannonau, a vine that has linked its history over the centuries with that of these places and of the people who live there.

The centenary vines

Viticulture in our territory has very ancient roots.
It is intertwined with the history of this land and the people who over the centuries have inhabited this land.
The cultivation of vines in Ogliastra dates back several centuries old and today in some vineyards of our vinegrowers you can find specimens of Cannonau vines that reach 100 years of life.

From these plants, raised in sapling and with very low yields, we collect the best Cannonau grapes that are the protagonists of our Kannu Na ‘Um, the wines of centenarians.

The Centenarians wines

Kannu Na ‘Um is a word derived from the ancient Assyrian-Babylonian language and its meaning can be translated into “our sapling”. 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 mean the vine, a precious plant linked to the historical events of the ancient peoples who inhabited Sardinia centuries and centuries ago. Today we wanted to renew this story with these two wines that arise from the selection of the best Cannonau grapes from the oldest vines, some of which reach and exceed 100 years.

Two enological unicums that renew and reinforce the Cannonau tradition here in Ogliastra and demonstrate the versatility of this great autochthonous vine.
