“Orriu” in the local dialect means the straw basket where to put grapes during the harvest. Cannonau is produced all over the Sardinia Island, the original area of production is Dorgali on the north east, but you can find in the south west like in the Sulcis area and close to Arborea, where Quatomoro is located. The vicinity of the sea and the breezy weather gives an unusual freshness and minerality.
Quartomoro di Sardegna was initially used by Piero Cella himself to experiment and test different ideas to learn more about his own wines. This led him naturally to develop it into what it is today, a kind of ‘workshop of ideas’ where new wines are created. It is a quintessential selection chosen to represent the true culture of wine in Sardinia.
