Sella E Mosca Alghero Tanca Farra 2003

Member Review by Eric Guido:

Nose is big and dark with molasses hitting me first followed by black and blue fruits. Potpourri, leather and a hint of animal musk follow. The palate showed tart cherry, tar with soil and minerals leading to a sour berry finish. I certainly see where people are getting the Piedmont comparison but I find this wine to be disjointed and a bit chewy. It may have some similar characteristics but came off as only slightly interesting and not likely to improve much more from where it is now.

An interesting mix of Grenache and Cabernet and from Sardinia no less - what intrigue. The wine has nice color and balance with some spiciness on the finish and structure from the Cabernet. On the whole though, an unremarkable wine and there are surely better buys at the price.

A very intriguing wine. Has the fruit and depth of a nice Cabernet Savignon but has a light spicy dimension brought by the Cannonau blended in. Very enjoyable
