    Cannonau “Noras” 2013 Santadi

    From: $24.99

    logosantadi-sm

    The Cannonau di Sardegna Noras represents a big jump forward in qualityfrom the sunny heart of the Mediterranean. The approach is elegant and streamlined, and the bouquet imparts careful aromas of black cherry, dried violets and sweet spice.

    The quality of the wine’s primary aromas are first rate. In the mouth, Noras delivers sweet richness and generous fruit layers.

    There’s nothing not to like here.  R.Parker

    Vermentino di Gallura Superiore JANKARA DOCG 2015

    From: $28.90

     

    vigne-surrau-granite2

     

     

    Classification: Vermentino di Gallura Superiore DOCG

    Varieties: 100% Vermentino

    The bouquet is explosive with hints of white almond flowers and mandarin peel, the palate is rich and intense with great minerality and balanced acidity. The finish is warm and lengthy with a slight almond retro-taste typical to the Vermentino grape.

     

    The Story: Owned and operated by Angela and Renato Spanu, who says
    “the Jankara vineyards are located in the highlands of Gallura, in the
    heart of a prestigious sub-zone called Vena di San Leonardo, which runs
    from Lake Liscia to the territory around the minuscule, medieval country
    church of San Leonardo. The Vermentino vines are planted on a cru
    called Giannaghe, which is Jannaca in the local dialect and it faces
    another historic cru called Karana. And that, in fact, is how the name
    Jankara came about: JANnaca-KARAna. The microclimate is outstanding,
    influenced by the vast lake and the island’s second highest mountain,
    Limbara. Jankara is right in the middle and enjoys hot days and cool
    nights throughout the most important months of the growing season.
    Pair that with the never-ending winds that constantly ‘clean’ the air, keep
    temperatures down and maintain the vineyard free of pests and disease,
    and you have the perfect conditions to grow quality grapes!”

    Carignano Riserva Rocca Rubia Santadi 2012

    From: $34.90

    logosantadi-smThe Carignano del Sulcis Riserva Rocca Rubia is exciting and flashy from the very first taste. Expressive dark red fruit, flowers, spices and mint all burst from the glass. Inviting and beautifully balanced, it impresses for its pliancy and sheer exuberance. Even better, it is a fabulous wine for the money. R.Parker

    A Sardinian Sassicaia in the making

    This so-called “Sardinian Sassicaia” is made by the same people who brought us the legendary

    Tuscan red wine.

    Barrua is a blend of Carignano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that sees some 18 months of oak aging. This edition shows a soft and slightly jammy style with dark blackberry preserves, dried cherry, black olive and generous secondary aromas of oak spice and tobacco.

    Barrua always shows impeccable balance.

    Considering the warm vintage conditions, this edition offers that same sense of overall harmony. The wine is engineered for either near or long term drinking. It should hold for a decade.
