Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva 2013

Sardinia, ItalyCannonau is the Sardinian grape said to be the forerunner of grenache. In this wine, it is grown on clay and sandy soils. The nose is fresh in the Mediterranean way, showing warmth and intense plummy/raspberry fruit. The palate shows a touch of weight with a juicy, dry, savoury, cherry flavour and just a touch of Brett. The grapes are aged for two years in large Slavonian oak barrels before spending several more months in bottle. Good value.Tasted: 27 September 2017Tasted 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.
