TN: 2007 Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva

  • 2007 Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva - Italy, Sardinia, Cannonau di Sardegna (9/24/2011)
    Sensational quality for the money. Can be had for less than $12 per bottle locally in Austin. This is a Cannonau (Grenache) from Sardinia and it is like no other Grenache I’ve ever had. Medium-bodied with silky (rather than velvety) texture, this shows lots of interesting nuance. Red licorice, earth, leather, dried herbs and cherry. Not something I would cellar, but it’s terrific with all kinds of Italian food including Pizza and Pasta.

Thanks for the TN, Steffen. I’ve been meaning to try this.

Check out Contini’s cannonau if you can find them. I particularly like their Inu Riserva as a refined take on Cannonau di Sardegna.
