Argiolas Costera Cannonau de Sardegna 2013

The 2013 Cannonau di Sardegna Costera hits all the right buttons. This is a steady and well presented red wine from the heart of the Mediterranean. It shows a high level of confidence and boldness with big, black cherry aromas followed by more subtle nuances of spice, tobacco and freshly milled black pepper. Although the wine tastes very dry, it is not without its softness and plushness in terms of texture.

Vibrant and spicy, this savory red delivers aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, black cherry, ground pepper and chopped Mediterranean herb. Firm, fine-grained tannins support the juicy flavors. An anise note backs up the finish.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast 10/5
 
There is a moderate amount of dried black cherry and plum fruit with oak.  This is moderately tannic and rustic overall-not “soft and plush” or “ripe” and “juicy” as described above.
