This wine surprised me beyond my expectations at this price. It has a classic Italian lightness to it similar to a quality Valpolicella or other semi-acidic wine from the Veneto region. Yet this grape is native to Sardegna alone

The New Italy/ The Sardinian variety Cannonau produces velvety reds like this black cherry-filled bottling from one of Sardinia's largest producers.

/ 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.

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.

/ The 2002 Connonau Riserva is light ruby in color with an orange rim and displays scents of cranberry, spice earth and leather. On the palate it exhibits sweet blackcurrant fruit, anise and more earth and leather accents, combined with finely wrought tannins, and a soft juicy finish. This is a wine for food and early consumption.

Over the Barrel/ Drink 2005-2015. Cannonau is the Italian name for Grenache. Very dark color with purple hues. Violets, roasted game and jam to the nose. Well balanced with plummy fruit and cherries in the mouth. The texture is silky with a lot of finesse and length.

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.

*Sella & Mosca Multi-Review Flier - Wine Advocate/ The 2005 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva is made in a light to medium-bodied style that emphasizes its ethereal, perfumed aromatics rather than an over expression of fruit, as is often the case with other Cannonaus. Theis 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.
