Had this with lunch the other day at Tronino's @ Home. Not a bad bottle, spicy and unripe berry, but with rounded mouth. Took a long time to open up a bit. Might do well with a bit more age?

Very earthy, rustic, beautiful color and bouquet. Surprisingly not tannic and no after effects, i.e. headaches. Becoming one of my favorites.

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.

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.

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.

Tastings: Southern Italy/ Light and elegant, this estate-grown cannonau has a lively acidity and saline minerality that makes its plummy fruit irresistibly vibrant. Try it with eggplant rollatini.

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.

/ 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.

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.

/ 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.
