Stella and Mosca Cannonau Riserva Sardegna 2005
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.
Sweet floral scent, otherwise muted. The floral scent of this wine carries over into the initial taste. Medium tannins with a floral taste as well. a drier finish
Great wine + value. Spicy and dry. Funky (in a good way) - fun might be a better descriptor ;-)
Versatile, fruity, pairs well with many dishes. Hints of raspberry and strawberry could be a poor man's Pinot Noir.
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.
Really intense. Great earthy, barnyard smell with hints of gasoline...I know by that description it sounds awful...but this is a nice bottle of wine.
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.

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