Fresh..minerally..spicy nose..good texture..
but very drinkable.
Argiolas Turriga 2000
The Turriga is a single vineyard wine, 85% Cannonau..known elsewhere as Grenache..and a mix of Malvasia Nera, Carignano, and the very obscure Bovale Sardo.
From particularly low yields, the grapes are
vinified traditionally and the wine is then transferred to new French oak casks for a period of approximately 18 months maturation.
Deep ruby red...full-bodied wine with aromas of
cherries & blackcurrant..some burnt smoke...chocolate....
big & chunky at first..became round and smooth...spice, tobacco.Needs meat to show it's best..which is what
it got..my favourite main course..duck filet
with figs and dates...luvverly!
