Argiolas Red Blend Isola Dei Nuraghi IGT Turriga 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Costera is the finest of these entry-level bottlings. A massive generous wine it literally bursts onto the palate with waves of game earthiness mint spices herbs and bacon fat notes that swirl around a core of ripe dark fruit. There is outstanding harmony and balance in the glass especially at this price point. Costera is 90% Cannonau 5% Carignano and 5% Bovale Sardo (all native varieties) that spent roughly 6-8 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity 2008-2012. RP.

I was stationed in Sarinia and fell in love with their wines, especially the Cannonau varieties. While I never had a bad glass of Sardinian wine, even the pitchers at the Mom and Pop bistros that were vintage dated "Last Wednesday" were delicious pared with food, the Argiolas Costera was my favorite. A simple unpretentious, yet full bodied red that is best if allowed to breathe a bit. Try it with Pasta Arribiata (zitti in red pepper sauce), or Filet di Pepe ( filet mignion with a creamy green peppercorn sauce). You'll enjoy it all the way through the cheese course (aged Peccorino Romano). It is said that Americans see food as fuel, the French see food as Art, Italians see food as Life, at least the part worth living. This wine goes well with Life.

Made from the Sardinian grape called Cannonau (Grenache), offers a dark plum color, and earthy, smoked herb, pepper, and cherry jam aromas. In the mouth, this is a broadly-textured wine with meaty, beef blood, smoky charcoal-like flavors, medium body, and a lusty, exuberant, heady finish. It is a hedonistic, delicious, full-flavored red to drink over the next 4-5 years.

The 1999 Costera is primarily made from the indigenous Cannonau grape (believed to be a kissing cousins of Grenache). It sees a touch of new French oak. The wine is dense, chewy, full-bodied, layered, and seamless with sweet kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with licorice and vanilla. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Solid red. Aromas of wild berries and green tea. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a straightforward, fruity aftertaste. Cannonau. Drink now.

Intense ruby red in color. On the nose it is intensely winey with a strong and full bouquet, typical of the Cannonau varietal. Warm and full-bodied on the palate, with excellent texture and ripe fruit flavors. Firm and pleasant tannins.
