From: Sardinia, Italy
Varietal: Cannonau (Grenache)
This wine is from the province of Alghero near the northwest coast of the island. Known as the “Coral Riviera,” Alghero’s landscape, sea life, and coral jewelry reflect a unique bright red color; Coral was also known as “Sardinian Gold” since it was a means of exchange for ancient traders. Alghero’s Mediterranean soul is reflected in the gold and coral red amulet that graces the label of Sella & Mosca’s Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva.
Tasting Notes: The wine has a translucent and brilliant ruby red color with a garnet hue that announces intense, bright aromas. The fresh scent of violet is integrated with notes of jam, plums, blackcurrants, and warm spices. It coats the palate in an embrace dominated by cherries, wild berries, and herbal elements, opening up to hints of toasted spice and a discreet tannin on the finish.
Pairing: Large portions of land on the Italian isle of Sardinia are used for grazing sheep as a source of meat, milk, and cheese, so lamb dishes and sheep’s milk cheeses follow as a natural pairing for this wine. However, the warm fruit and spice flavors in the wine will go nicely with an array of grilled vegetables and meats, or even tomato-based pasta dishes.
