The Tasting Panel
Grown in the clay and limestone soils of southwest Sardinia, this Carignanobased red sees the addition of some Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Cab Franc. It begins with tarry chocolate notes and a layer of topsoil lined with blackberry and black pepper. Teeth-gripping notes of anise and dark plum form an intriguing, dense mouthfeel on the finish. Aged for 12 months in French oak
A rich and dense red from Sardinia with dark berries and plums, as well as walnuts and bark. It’s full and chewy and slightly rustic. But real at the same time.
