Bright red. Rich and almost sweet red fruit and spices on the nose and palate. Sweet and creamy on entry, then slightly tough with noteworthy tannic bite, but there’s enough fruit lurking beneath the tannic cloak that I think all this really needs is a little time in the cellar/bottle. Very serious Carignano wine that eschews the easy sweetness and softness typical of many wines made with this variety providing instead something more interesting, bigger and more structured than usual.

This elegantly structured wine opens with aromas of black plum, mocha, Mediterranean herbs and a hint of scorched earth. The round, eveloping palate doles out ripe black cherry, blackberry, cinnamon and white pepper, while firm, silky tannins provide the framework. A fantastic wine, it's already enjoyable and will offer fine drinking over the next few years.

...is a soft, easygoing red with excellent definition it is varietal aromas and flavors. Sweet herbs, flowers and tobacco linger on the finish. This is a pretty...wine... Sella & Mosca is one of the oldest and best-known wineries in Sardinia. Curiously, many of the estate's wines rely on international grapes, something that sets Sella & Mosca apart from the vast majority of wineries on the island.
