Red Wine

Sella & Mosca Di Riserva Sardinia Grenache 2005, D.O.C., Sardinia, Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: Cannonau (a.k.a. Grenache) di Sardegna is the Italian answer to France’s Côte du Rhône. This pale-coloured red, typical to the variety, displays complex aromas of ripe plum, wild berries, spices, tobacco, dried flowers and smoke. The palate is filled with dense, plump and attractive fruit flavours. My note: A vibrant chianti-style red with zesty notes of ripe red berries, zingy dried tomatoes and a smoky back note. Full-bodied with rich, mouth-watering layers. This wine is part of the Vintages Essentials Collection. 425488 13.50% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100. April 21, 2009 Full Review
