Great wine + value. Spicy and dry. Funky (in a good way) - fun might be a better descriptor ;-) Read more

Versatile, fruity, pairs well with many dishes. Hints of raspberry and strawberry could be a poor man's Pinot Noir. Read more

    Awesome wine. Underrated, because the entire region is underrated. This presumably 89-point wine tastes better than many 90-92-point wines I tasted in the last year.

    Horrible - overpowering gasoline taste. Not even fit to cook with. First bottle was so bad, I thought it was corked, got a 2nd and nope, just plain old terrible wine.

    First time I tried it I was not a big fan but I gave it another try and now I am hooked, 2 of my favorite red wine types are now this from Sardinia and Nero D' Avola from Sicily and they are 2 or the least expensive reds from Italy too with the most health benefits as well.

    One of my favorite wines along with the Nero D' Avola from Sicily.

    Wine Tasting NotesIntense with scents of violet. Well-rounded and supple with rich, ripe, plummy flavors.

    Schönes Granatrot mit ziegelroten Reflexen. würzig, ausdrucksvoll und warm das Bouquet. Harmonisch und samtig der Gaumen mit zarten Pflaumen- und dezenten Holznoten im Finale.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Wine Advocate Review Rated 88 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. Wine Tasting Notes Intense with scents of violet. Well-rounded and supple with rich, ripe, plummy flavors.
