The 2016 Isola dei Nuraghi Turriga is intense, spicy and packed full of tart blackberry and cherry, further complicated by shavings of cedar and animal musk. It’s silky and polished in feel, displaying an unexpected elegance. The dark fruits and exotic spice give way to grippy tannins and minerals toward the close. The palate aches under its youthful tension, with notes of black currants, bitter coffee and tobacco lasting for well over a minute. The 2016 Turriga will need some time in the cellar to show its best, but it will be worth the wait. It’s a blend of 85% Cannonau, 5% Carignano, 5% Bovale Sardo and 5% Malvasia Nera.
