The Story behind the Cellar Door & Cannonau Riserva:
Gostolai is a relatively small wine producer who focus on quality and produce their wine in the traditional methods of their forefathers. We met them at VinItaly, a famous wine expo held in Verona, and were immediately both suprised and impressed with this fantastic wine. The company directors at Gostolai are very passionate and knowledgable about their wine and an instant rapport was struck.
The Cellar Door proudly carries the Cannonau di Sardegna Nepente Riserva and we give it a high score. We recommend this bottle to our customers as one of the best wines within this price range on the website."
