Lucious, inky red wine from Sardinia. The grape is the Sardinian Grenache grape known as Cannonau. Unique grape with a very rich berry flavor, pleasant nose and a lingering taste of spice such as cinnamon. Paired wonderfully with lasagna. Did not pair as well with poultry. Should do well with red meat. Drank in November 2023 — a month ago

Delicious Vermentino. Crisp and fruity and summery and good with seafood. The label claims it benefits from the “maestrale” (mistral winds). Glad someone is enjoying that wind! — 4 months ago
Surprisingly, needs quite some time to open up.
After 3h crunchy cherries emerge, black sweet cherries, some wilted flowersC a whiff of black plum plus a healthy pinch of spices.
On the palate this is quite light, savoury, with bright acidity. Much more evolved than on the nose. Nicely polished tannins. Dried cherries and a herby note. Good length, yet lacks a bit of depth.
Holding on very nicely. — 8 months ago
Great local wine in Sardinia. — a year ago
This white wine has the color of light onion skin - a nice hue for a white which has been in the bottle for some five years. The nose is immediately familiar to me, even though I have never tasted this grape before. It smells like the white wines of the Midwest and northeastern U.S. There is a strong fruit aroma - apricot and Meyer lemon - and an even stronger mineral aspect. A little bit of melon brings what little sweetness I pick up. The palate shows a basket full of savory notes - lanolin, minerals, citric tartness, pepper, spice and sage. Acidity is fine - not too tingly but not too flat. The finish is lengthy and focused on the fruit. I am impressed. This wine paired magnificently, by the way, with the turmeric and lemon bowtie pasta I bought at Eataly. I mixed it with cabbage and onions in butter. So simple, so good. — 10 months ago
