Cannonau of Sardinia
The wine Babbu is obrained by our vineyard, from grapes which ripened on plants for a long period of time. Because of this, the wine is characterised by a sweet taste.
Babbu is a sipping wine that should be tasted calmly and can also be associated to typical dry sweets from our island and blue cheeses seasoned with honey or arbutus.
