2007 Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva (Italy, Sardinia, Cannonau di Sardegna)

Cannonau di Sardegna, Grenache, Italy, Red Wine, Sardinia

Sensational quality for the money. Can be had for less than $12 per bottle locally in Austin. This is a Cannonau (Grenache) from Sardinia and it is like no other Grenache I’ve ever had. Medium-bodied with silky (rather than velvety) texture, this shows lots of interesting nuance. Red licorice, earth, leather, dried herbs and cherry. Not something I would cellar, but it’s terrific with all kinds of Italian food including Pizza and Pasta.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
