Bright ruby color, with purple hues, the aromas project ripe red berry, including strawberry and raspberry jam. In the mouth, coffee, spices and herbs, including an aroma of violets, plummy fruit flavours and aristocratic oak overtone. Full, round, fruit forward, consumer friendly taste profile. Oak aged for two years in large Slavonian casks with several additional months in the bottle. Medium-bodied for food-friendly matchings. "The World's Best Wine Under $25! A light to medium-bodied style that emphasizes ethereal,perfumed aromatics rather than an overt expression of fruit." by Robert Parker Robert Parker 91 The Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva Dimonios is a very interesting red wine that is rooted in an authentic sense of typicity and territory. The bouquet is beautifully etched and elegant with wild berries, Sardinian mirto and balsam herb. The bouquet has a lifting and pungent quality that may indicate a very low level of volatility, although it only serves to increase the wine's overall intensity and sharpness. The results are tight and expressive."
