Growing areas It is common in almost all the wine-growing areas of Sardinia, particularly in the province of Nuoro and Sassari, but recently it is also located in the province of Vicenza, with the name of red spots. In the noon of France it is called grenache and is one of the most popular vines.
History The recent finds of ancient Cannonau grapevines in various archaeological sites in Sardinia have allowed to rewrite part of the history of the origins of domestication of vine in Italy and the Mediterranean. Lastly, at the excavations carried out in 2002 at Borore in the archaeological site of Duos Nuraghes, hundreds of grapevines (seeds in a grape), old, dated carbonized, dating back to 1200 BC, were found Christ, 3,200 years ago. This discovery - which has led the Duos Nuraghes site to the forefront - in addition to demonstrating that nuragic populations cultivated vine and produced wine, made it possible to understand that the Sardinian Cannonau, which until now was thought to have been imported from Spain , Is of a different variety from the Iberian variety and could be vice versa from Sardinia, "and then exported to Spain, following the primary irradiation of agriculture, from the fertile Crescent. Official historical theory until the recent discoveries on Sardinian grapevines reported that the domestication of vines, born in the Caucasus and Mesopotamia area, was gradually transferred to Anatolia and Egypt, from here in the Aegean Islands, Greece and the rest of the world, Europe, finally thanks to the Phoenicians arrived in the Western Mediterranean and Sardinia. Today, with recent archaeological discoveries, it can be safely stated that with the arrival of the Phoenicians, in Sardinia the cultivation and domestication of Vitis vinifera was already known.
