Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva, Sardinia, Italy 2014
Cannonau is the oenological nexus of Sardinia, and perhaps of the entire Mediterranean basin. Sella & Mosca lavishes extra care on it, cultivating it in the warm and sandy seaside vineyards and the harsh and rocky inland soils of the hills.
Mature and refined aromas. The resh scent of violet is perfectly integrated with notes of jam, plums, blackcurrants and oriental spices.
The palate is solid, well-structured and warm in its embrace, but always well–balanced, thanks also to fresh bursts of balsam and medicinal herbs and berries. The aftertaste presents toasted hints before returning to the spicy route.
