Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 90% Cannonau, 5% Carignano and 5% Bovale Sardo grown in the Costera vineyard. Intense, ruby red. The full bouquet and fruit of sweet black cherry, pepper, and licorice is typical of the Cannonau grape. *Always a good value and a staff favorite for many years.*

Argiolas, of Sardinia, makes excellent wines with Cannonau, the local name for Grenache (of which this wine is based), and Carignano, the local name for Carignan.

Flows from the glass with layers of exquisitely perfumed fruit buttressed by fine, silky tannins. There is an element of pure elegance and refinement that is hard to do justice to with words.

On the island of Sardinia off Italy's coast is one of the very few places you will find Italian Grenache. It is called Cannonau and grows very well there. Located amid Sardinia's natural beauty, just north of Cagliari, the Argiolas estate is widely known for its crisp and refreshing white wines and complex and precocious reds. Antonio Argiolas and his twin sons, Franco and Giuseppe, have worked diligently to fulfill their commitment to become the leaders in Sardinian enology. And the Wine Advocate has said that Argiolas produces, essential wines for those looking to discover what the wines and viticulture of Sardinia are all about. This Cannonau red scored 91 points in that publication. They went on to say "The estate’s 2009 Isola dei Nuraghi Costera flows from the glass with layers of exquisitely perfumed fruit buttressed by fine, silky tannins. There is an element of pure elegance and refinement that is hard to do justice to with words. This is another terrific red from Argiolas. Costera is a blend of 90% Cannonau, 5% Carignano and 5% Bovale Sardo. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014."
