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.

Sweet floral scent, otherwise muted. The floral scent of this wine carries over into the initial taste. Medium tannins with a floral taste as well. a drier finish

Great wine + value. Spicy and dry. Funky (in a good way) - fun might be a better descriptor ;-)

    Versatile, fruity, pairs well with many dishes. Hints of raspberry and strawberry could be a poor man's Pinot Noir.

    / Medium bodied with bright but balanced acidity; flavors of red currant and cranberry with notes of dried herb and leather. Pecorino Ginepro with grilled figs and truffle honey.

    Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ A light- to medium-bodied style that emphasizes ethereal, perfumed aromatics rather than overt expression of fruit.

    In Italy and elsewhere in Europe, wine connoisseurs and industry professionals rate Sella & Mosca among Italy's most outstanding wine estates. Sella & Mosca's I Piani estate in Sardinia constitutes the second largest contiguous vineyard in Italy and counts itself among the country's most impressive wineries. Situated in the northwest corner of Sardinia, just inland from the pretty, historic port of Alghero, this 1,600-acre property with more than 1,200 acres of vines is one of the largest wine estates in Europe As Sardinia's foremost wine producer, Sella & Mosca is renowned for premium wines made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. In addition to native varieties such as Vermentino and Cannonau, the winery has successfully pioneered the introduction of international grape varieties, notably Cabernet Sauvignon. Production Area Selected portions of the Sella & Mosca estate’s Cannonau vineyards with clay and sand soils, near the port of Alghero in the northwest corner of Sardinia. Grape Varieties 100% Cannonau Vinification The grapes are harvested manually and mechanically in late autumn and undergo fermentation in stainless steel vats for fifteen days at 72-79°F. Aged two years in large Slavonian oak barrels with an additional several months in bottle prior to release. Color Initially dark, ruby red, during maturation it loses intensity and takes on a warmer tone Bouquet Mesmerizing scent, redolent of violets Taste Warm, dry, and harmonious with plumy fruit flavors and an aristocratic oak overtone. Alcohol 13.5%

    / The 2003 Cannonau Riserva is dark ruby in color with savory aromas of red and black fruit, gamey smoked meat, herbs and olives. It has a lush mouth feel with savory fruit, oak and spice, and dry tannins on the finish. A terrific wine for the price.

    Great Values from Italy/ Sella e Mosca is another of the Sardinian estates worth keeping an eye on. There wines are of terrific value. The estate’s 2004 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva possesses a delicate core of ripe fruit and an ethereal, understated personality. This understated, feminine Cannanau is best enjoyed over the next one to two years.

    Wine of the Month/ Drink it! In outstanding vintage years, this Sardinian estate, founded by two men from Piedmont in 1899, produces this excellent Riserva. Made from grapes picked in select areas of its Cannonau vineyards, this rich, ripe wine is aged three years in oak, which gives it a nice round feel on the palate. Gorgeous plummy flavors make it perfect for the summer months. Pair it! Try this lovely red with grilled tuna or spicy penne all'arrabbiata.
