In the most outstanding vintage years, Sella & Mosca produces a Riserva version of its Cannonau, made from grapes picked in selected portions of its Cannonau vineyards. Aged three years in oak prior to release, this aristocratic red will sustain a decade or more of aging.
Sardinia's premier wine estate, Sella & Mosca, is known on the Italian mainland and elsewhere in Europe for its remarkably fine and distinctive wines. Sella & Mosca ranks among Europe's most progressive wine estates and comprises the second largest contiguous vineyard in Italy.
Grape Varieties 100% Cannonau
Color Rich red Bouquet Intense with scents of violet.
Taste Well-rounded and supple with rich, ripe, plummy flavors.
This Sardinian wine is unpretentious, delicious, and very drinkable. I have enjoyed it for years.
Maybe my tastes run to a bit stronger, bolder flavor but sharing this bottle with a friend, albeit after a bar session of beer and Tequila, we both thought it was acceptable as something to be shared at dinner or on the belly of a beautiful woman. It will not change your world, but neither will a belly of a beautiful woman. A perfectly acceptable wine, not to impress the future in-laws, but it will cap off a good evening.
I first tried this wine in a upscale restaurant while visiting Boston. I had never heard of Cannonau before, but it's actually a ganache. I liked it so much I bought 4 bottles while there. (I had to walk back to my hotel and that was all I could manage to carry. They do not sell this in my area. Finally found it on wine.com. Yeah!
