- Cantina Dorgali Cannonau di Sardegna Isalle 2011 Product #27958 (In Stock)
If you ask them, Sardinians will tell you that Spain's Garnacha grape actually was first domesticated on their Mediterranean Island (the folks in Spain will not agree!). As in Spain, the vines grow here in short, stubby, bushes and thrive in places too hot and dry for other grapes. This fine example delivers classic notes of kirsch, cherry, and blackberry with just a touch of herb. In the mouth, it's full bodied and round and full of dark red fruit, spice, and mineral flavors with accents of roasted coffee and chocolate. The firm tannins make it a great match for roast lamb or any dish with olives.
