Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva 2010

Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva 2010

750ML      
Sku: 131027

As Sardinia’s foremost wine producer, Sella & Mosca is renowned for premium wines made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. In addition to native varieties such as Vermentino and Cannonau, the winery has successfully pioneered the introduction of international grape varieties, notably Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting notes
Color - Initially dark, ruby red, during maturation it loses intensity and takes on a warmer tone Bouquet - Mesmerizing scent, redolent of violets Taste - Warm, dry, and harmonious with plumy fruit flavors and an aristocratic oak overtone.

Review
Well balanced on the palate, with good length and a distinct aftertaste of chocolate. Old world style wine.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Dec 2014)
A flagship wine from Sardinia, the 2010 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva presents a very authentic portrait of the island’s most celebrated red grape. There is austerity here and a sense of vinous earnestness that distinguishes the wine’s unique personality. Instead of banal softness or richness, here you get firm lines and sharp contours with bright berry, spice, licorice and grilled herb. There should be some fat in your food pairing (cheese or pork belly) to counter the wine’s rigid persona.

Wine maker notes
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 flavors 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.
