This estate bottled red wine from the Alghero region of northwestern Sardinia is made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and aged in small Troncais oak barriques, then in traditional casks for over 4 years. Color is ruby red with a palate that is full and complex. The deep berry aromas are intense but even, along with an earthy cherry and toasted oak. The long soft finish is like herbs on a warm breeze. This wine is outstanding! Tasting was done at Accademia di Vino on 63rd st & 3rd Ave, NYC.
