Sardinia wine route: top 10 guide

Oliena is one of the liveliest villages, with great trattorie, wine bars and a choice of producers that range from the cheap and cheerful Cantina Oliena, where a standard cannonau will set you back €6.90 (£5.80), to some of the most respected viticulturists. Winemaker Tonino Arcadu, a former school teacher and welcoming host, is definitely the person to meet to soak up the history and tradition of cannonau. “Lots of people in Sardinia want to drink young wines,” he says. “Well, I don’t. I prefer to wait a few years before putting them on the market.” The vintages are certainly out of the ordinary – especially the 2008 Cannonau Nepente and a sensational 2006 Riserva D’Annunzio – lighter in colour than a classic blood-red cannonau but delicious to drink.
