WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "caresses the palate with juicy dark cherries, plums, tobacco, spices and licorice. Elements of sweetness, inner perfume Read More...
and pure silkiness distinguish the Costera from the vast majority of its peers. A hint of sweet flowers and mint lingers on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2015."

Argiolas has long been the quality leader on the previously overlooked island of Sardegna (Sardinia). The island's Cannonau based wines have become sought after since a daytime TV host suggested that perhaps drinking Cannonau contributed to the islanders' longevity. We make no such health claims but we do enjoy the flavors of Cannonau which turns out to be Grenache (Garnacha). The 2010 Argiolas Costera is composed of 90% Cannonau, 5% Bovale Sardo and 5% Carignano (Carignan) grown on the calcareous soils of the Costera vineyard. Antonio Galloni, writing in the February 2013 issue of the Wine Advocate, gave this red a 90 point rating.
Serve this with beef, lamb, chorizo paella, roast pork, pasta with Bolognese sauce or Sardinian Pecorino cheese.

The rarest and most robust of Sardinia’s native red grapes, the Bovale Sardo is nearly black in color, densely packed and explosively wide-ranging in flavor. For Pala, the Cannonau Read More...
and Monica are grown at higher altitudes to produce better balance and aroma, but the Bovale grape is sun-loving and is grown on a hot, rocky plain. Look for blackberry fruit, luscious fig, ripe black olive and a thread of savory wild herbs throughout. There are over 4 million sheep grazing on the rugged hills of Sardinia—it’s easy to imagine a glass of this powerful red as a perfect accompaniment to a rack of lamb.

Cannanou is the standard bearer for Sardinian red varieties. It is related to Grenache and may even be the parent of Spain's and France’s Grenache vineyards as ancient Cannonou seeds Read More...
have been found in Sardinia dating back to 1,500 BC. Imagine a medium-bodied Côtes du Rhone as a starting point, but with look for more dramatic notes of wild herbs from the rustic Sardinian hills: black plum, sage, thyme and subtle smoky lavender. This is a warm, ripe red that holds onto its prettiness despite the heat of the sun.

is the same grape the Spanish brought to California as the "Mission Grape." This is the supplest and brightest of the three classic Sardinian red varieties. Look for aromas of violets and subtle anise backed by a core of red fruit. Monica is traditionally served with fuller, fattier fish dishes, especially Sardignia's famous Blue Fin Tuna.
