Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi 2019

Santadi, Cagliari, Sardinia, ItalyPredominantly carignano (also known as carignan), with 10 percent additions of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, and syrah, this savoury red comes from Santadi in the southwest of Sardinia. It's led by stewed dark plums, with leather, sundried tomato, dried florals, and anise. It's very much in the Mediterranean idiom; a complex wine, to be sure, if a bit rustic and soft, though with polished, fine-grained tannins. A touch warming on the finish, serve this with a light chill and drink in the short term.Tasted: 14 March 2023Tasted by: Prices:
