WA 91 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2011 Cannonau di Sardegna Noras represents a big jump forward in quality compared to past editions of this historic Cannonau from the sunny heart of the Mediterranean. The approach is elegant and streamlined, and the bouquet imparts careful aromas of black cherry, dried violets and sweet spice. The quality of the wine's primary aromas are first rate. In the mouth, Noras delivers sweet richness and generous fruit layers. There's nothing not to like here.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 Monica di Sardegna Antigua is an absolutely joyous wine for the money. Dark red cherries, grilled herbs, juniper berries and spices all burst from the glass. In 2011 Santadi did a magnificent job with this entry-level red, a wine that captures the essence of one of Sardinia's indigenous grapes, and way overdelivers for its modest price.
According to Wine Spectator - Raspberry ganache, grilled herb and smoke notes mix in this light- to medium-bodied, well-balanced red framed by juicy acidity and dusty tannins. Drink now through 2018.
According to Wine Enthusiast - This robust red opens with aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, scorched earth and dark cooking spice. The warm, forward palate offers black cherry marinated in spirits and licorice accompanied by ripe, velvety tannins. Cannonau 90%, Carignano 10%. 15.5% ABV.
