*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.

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.

/ 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.
