Tasting notes
Color - Initially dark, ruby red, during maturation it loses intensity and takes on a warmer tone Bouquet - Mesmerizing scent, redolent of violets Taste - Warm, dry, and harmonious with plumy fruit flavors and an aristocratic oak overtone.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Dec 2014)
A flagship wine from Sardinia, the 2010 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva presents a very authentic portrait of the island’s most celebrated red grape. There is austerity here and a sense of vinous earnestness that distinguishes the wine’s unique personality. Instead of banal softness or richness, here you get firm lines and sharp contours with bright berry, spice, licorice and grilled herb. There should be some fat in your food pairing (cheese or pork belly) to counter the wine’s rigid persona.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are harvested manually and mechanically in late autumn and undergo fermentation in stainless steel vats for fifteen days at 72-79F. Aged two years in large Slavonian oak barrels with an additional several months in bottle prior to release.
