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.
Color: Rich red
Bouquet: Intense with scents of violet.
Taste: Well-rounded and supple with rich, ripe, plummy flavors.
"The 2006 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva is a fabulous wine for the money. This isn’t the most complex Cannonau readers will come across, but it nevertheless impresses for its persistence, purity of fruit and wonderful balance. Dried cherries, crushed flowers and spices linger on the ethereal finish."
The Wine Advocate
"A velvety, crowd-pleasing cannonau, this has dark berry flavors and soft tannins. Though the wine is still a little reductive (rubbery), it's a fine match for gamey meats, whether lamb or venison. Best Buy."
