JS 92 Pts - According to James Suckling - "Fresh and aromatic with dried berries, flowers and minerals. It's full-bodied, with ultra-fine tannins and a mineral, salty, savory, dark-chocolate undertone on the finish. Drink or hold."
According to Wine Advocate - "Once an IGT wine, the entry level 2012 Cannonau di Sardegna Costera now boasts DOC status. Cannonau is blended with 5% Carignano and 5% Bovale and the wine reflects the wild beauty of the island that shaped it. Dried sage, wild berry and cassis emerge from the glass. Smooth tannins makes this a great option for pasta topped with shaved pecorino cheese."
According to Wine Spectator - "Balanced and medium-bodied, this subtle red offers modest plum, graphite and anise notes. Chewy finish."
Winemaker Notes - "Made from Cannonau, Carignano, and Bovale Sardo grapes grown in the loose, calcareous soils of the Costera vineyard, this wine embodies the true idea of Sardinian terroir. It is effusive yet deep with a long finish and incredible drinkability. Its maturation period is balanced between barriques and cement vats in order to preserve the fresh, fruit-forward aromas while adding subtle complexity. Ruby-red in color, aromas of ripe black cherries and tree fruits complement undertones of pepper and licorice. On the palate, a full body and velvety tannins make for excellent texture and ageworthiness." 14% ABV.
