Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva 2010

Sardinia, ItalyWe liked last year’s edition but the 2010 may even be better. Cannonau is the Sardinian grape said to be the forerunner of grenache; in this case grown on clay and sandy soils. The grapes are aged for two years in large Slavonian oak barrels before spending several more months in bottle. The nose is fresh with that special Mediterranean warmth and even more plummy/raspberry cherry fruit aromas and flavours. The palate is balanced with a juicy, dry, fruity, savoury, cherry flavour throughout. Impressive for the price. Serve with roast chicken or mushroom dishes.Tasted: 08 February 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.29 private wine shops AB 20.50 private wine shops MB 19.90 private wine shops Producer: Sella & MoscaDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
