Bright ruby color, with purple hues, the aromas project ripe red berry, including strawberry and raspberry jam. In the mouth, coffee, spices and herbs, including an aroma of violets, plummy fruit flavors and aristocratic oak overtone.

A frankly ridiculous value, the 2008 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva is gorgeous. Firm tannins frame a core of expressive red cherries, tobacco, wild herbs and flowers. The 2008 impresses for its depth and sheer richness. It is a magnificent wine from Sella e Mosca. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2016.

This aromatic red opens with attractive notes of garrigue, brick dust and leather that follow through to a firm palate of dried cherry and light fig flavors, supported by a fine minerally spine. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
