Sella & Mosca Cannonau Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva 2006
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
11/08/08 Black cherry & spice flavors. Quicker finish, fairly dry. We enjoyed this wine very much. A great buy.
Nose of dark fruit and a little heat. Tasted light and has a little tang to it. Finished like a glass of really ripe, dry, authentic apple cider. The kind you have to shake up to distribute the sediment. I like that about it. Light body very light color. Simple but good.
Really love this wine! Very easy drinking on its own , but pairs well with many foods. Use a true "red wine goblet" to fully enjoy it's flavor and aroma.

"Sella & Mosca Cannonau Riserva 2006 is rich red. It has intense with scents of violet. This wine is well-rounded and supple with rich
Light in color and thin in extraction, this Cannonau opens with aromas of forest berry, red candy, blue flowers, white stone, fennel seed and walnut nuttiness. There's enough dimension and structure here to pair with roasted pork, fried chicken or cheese-topped pasta.
The 2005 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva is made in a light to medium-bodied style that emphasizes its ethereal, perfumed aromatics rather than an overt expression of fruit, as is often the case with other Cannonaus. This understated, elegant wine reveals a core of sweet cherries that gradually emerges with air. It remains a feminine wine of notable class, particularly at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.
