Appearance: The initial ruby red gradually shades into warmer, less intense shades as the wine ages. Nose: The faintly tousled woodland fragrances of the wine's first year mature with ageing into a complex, elegant bouquet proffering distinct whiffs of violets that fuse well with the tertiary notes of spiciness contributed by cask conditioning. Palate: Warm, dried and beautifully poised, with a restrained background note of plums and an aristocratic hint of oak.

Wine AdvocateVibrant, fresh and fruity, the 2014 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva is an extremely well-priced red to pair with Sardinian gnocchi (malloreddus) topped with sausage tomato and saffron. In truth, any other basic Italian pasta recipe will do just fine next to a wine of this wide versatility and easy appeal. The bouquet possesses a dark core of cherry and red currant. There is light spice and bramble at the back. A whopping 700,000 bottles are produced, so it should be easy to locate this wine. Drink Date: 2017-2022.
