This aromatic red opens with attractive notes of garrigue, brick dust and leather that follow through to a firm palate of dried cherry and light fig flavors, supported by a fine minerally spine. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.Add winemaker's notes
Sella makes wines from Lessona and Bramaterra. The soil in Bramaterra includes sand of volcanic origin and some decomposed porphyr but the sand and rock it's derived from accounts for the significant differences between the two wines. Both wines are made in a very traditional way and are aged in the Sella cellars in large, neutral wood, though some new oak has been used on some wines.

A frankly ridiculous value, the 2008 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva is gorgeous. Firm tannins frame a core of expressive red cherries, tobacco, wild herbs and flowers. The 2008 impresses for its depth and sheer richness. It is a magnificent wine from Sella e Mosca. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2016.
