The island of Sardinia is off the beaten path, but that simply makes its wines terrific values.
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - #1 TOP 100 BEST BUYS This elegantly structured wine opens with aromas of black plum, mocha, Mediterranean herbs and a hint of scorched earth. The round, enveloping palate doles out ripe black cherry, blackberry, cinnamon and white pepper, while firm, silky tannins provide the framework. A fantastic wine, it's already enjoyable and will offer fine drinking over the next few years. - Kerin O'Keefe.October/2015
There is plenty of oak here, but the layers of ripe fruit keep it in check. Sardinian Sella & Mosca is one of the largest contiguous vineyard in all of Italy. Most Sardinian reds are made from Cannonau (Grenache), but this one is 100% Carignane. Wine Spectator: 88 “Spice and sanguine accents are an aromatic entry for this creamy, well-knit red which features a pure beam of black cherry on the palate, layered with the supple tannins and flavors of licorice drop and dried marjoram.
