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.

fertilizer or pesticide in the vineyards. An intriguing scent of jam berries, spicy notes of Mediterranean stand and myrtle. It's important structure, is seductive and a cross between an Amarone and Barolo, but easy to drink, it is rich and elegant, but at the same time has a very fresh, savory finish and the minerality makes you want a second glass.

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.
