Mora & Memo, Nau, Cannonau di Sardegna, DOC Sardinia, Italy, 2022

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.


The vineyards average 30 years of age with vines planted on a south, south east exposure on limestone and clay hillsides around 200 to 200m above sea level.


Maceration on the skins with selected yeasts for about 8-10 days at controlled temperature. After the maceration, fermentation continues in stainless steel vats. At the end of fermentation, the wine continues to refine in stainless steel vats for about six months at the end of the ageing process the wine goes into bottle for three months before its release.

Jancis Robinson 16 Points
Pale ruby. Some freshness on the nose here – more so than the Pala version. Sweet fruit and light tannin and acidity but it lacks just a little vital spark to earn a higher score. Perfectly nice but just a little simple. 16 Points, JR, August 2023.
