Argiolas Costera Isola dei Nuraghi IGT 2012

Argiolas Costera Isola dei Nuraghi IGT 2012

Sku: 213627

Tasting notes
The intense, ruby red color of this wine tends toward orange with age. The full bouquet of sweet black cherry, pepper, and licorice is typical of the Cannonau grape. Warm and full bodied on the palate with excellent texture, ripe fruit flavors and pleasant tannins.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Dec 2014)
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.
