Mora & Memo, Nau, Cannonau di Sardegna, DOC Sardinia, Italy, 2020

Producer Profile

The beautiful estate of Mora & Memo sits high in the hills in the south east of Sardinia just a few kilometres from the sea.

Focused on the indigenous varieties of Cannanou and Vermentino, the combination of old vineyards with minimal intervention and a delicate touch to the winemaking results in elegant, vibrant and mineral wines. Taking the reins from her father running this small scale winery, Elisabetta focuses on producing wine representative of the island terroir, executed in a modern way.
