Winemaker Notes: If there is anyone who deserves to be called king, that’s him: a strong and elegant sovereign, proud and noble, respected and loved. He knows how to live, the king, a deep and meditative thinker, the knowledge of making his own history. His majesty, the cannonau.

Food Pairing: Pair with cured meats, first courses with tasty condiments, mature or medium Sardinian pecorino cheese. Roast pig or lamb with myrtle and juniper berries, beef with sauce and wine. Serve at 16°-18°c / 60° – 64° F. Ages well, please store properly.

Other Notes: Audarya means “nobility of the soul”, in an ancient oriental language. It’s the name of our company because at the center of what we are there is respect. We make wines tied to the territory, with native grape varieties, but modern, for a spirited and curious public.
