Background:  Launched in 2000 by Francesco Siclari, Feudi della Medusa is one of Sardinia’s preeminent wineries. Located on the southern portion of the island, the estate enjoys a climate that is typically Mediterranean arid in the summer, rainy in the winter and windy, always windy. The soils are rocky, volcanic and well draining, perfect for fine wine grapes. In addition to international varieties, Feudi della Medusa also makes wines from indigenous vines including Cannonau, a highly aromatic, ancient relative of Grenache.

Wine Notes: A very brilliant garnet red in color with a bouquet of cherry and mint, this wine has a long and pungent flavor. Food pairing suggestions include: Baked pork, roasted boar and red meats; baked partridge and pheasant; cheeses: parmesan and Sardinian pecorino; cured cold meats and salami.
