Year2007

A taste of Sardinian terroir, local grapes.

The 2007 Costamolino is primarily Vermentino with a small addition of other local varieties. This is a gorgeous white with layers of perfume-laced fruit that flow from the...

Costera
2006
 
ClassificationDOC
ProducerArgiolas
Size0.75 l.
TypeWine
Grape100% Cannanou
Year2006
Alcohol13.5 %
TasteRich, well-rounded, satisfying, with a good structure, characteristic in its unmistakable bouquet - this wine is long-lived if well preserved in the bottle.
ColourThe intense, ruby red color of this wine tends toward orange with age.
TCD Opinion
The QPR of this wine is stunning. Bargain.

The 2006 Costera Isola dei Nuraghi (100% Cannonau) is another knock-out effort from Argiolas. It reveals masses of super-ripe fruit bacon fat and licorice flavors. Today...

Turriga
2003
 
ClassificationIGT
ProducerArgiolas
Size0.75 l.
TypeWine
GrapeTypical and particular to Sardinia (Cannonau, Carignano, Bovale Sardo), with the addition of Malvasia Nera.
Year2003
Alcohol14 %
TasteWell-rounded, heavy with an extremely individual and pleasing structure. Very high "souplesse" index.
ColourDark, but intense, ruby red, due to ageing
TCD Opinion
A wonderful opportunity to try the best of Sardinian winemaking, a 93 point blockbuster of some style. Spicey, big and powerful.

The estate's 2003 Turriga is a more linear, structured wine than the Korem. A bold, racy wine, it reveals sweeping elegance in its focused black fruit, bacon fat and wild...

TCD Score: 93/100
93 Points for the best vintage of Turriga ever produced. A stunning example of Sardinian winemaking showing the true potential and quality of the region.
 
 
Argiolas
 
Argiolas, along with Santadi, are the two best producers on the island. Run by Franco and Giuseppe Argiolas, sone of Antonio, with assistance from leading enologist Giacomo Tachis.

Since 1985 the 230 hectare estate has been completely replanted with the emphasis on local Sardinian varieties. There are good examples of the island's more widely seen DOCs including Costamolino (Vermentino di Sardegna); Costera (Cannonau di Sardegna); Perdera (Monica di Sardegna); and S'elegas (Nuragus di Cagliari), a crips dry white.

The best wines however are sold under the IGT Isola dei Nuraghi, Argiolas is mostly Vermentino, while Angialis, a fine light sweet wine, is made from (mostly) Nasco and Malvasia. Newish Cerdena is a Barrique fermented and aged Vermentino.

The top red is the deep but firmly structured Turriga, based on Cannonau but with 5% of each of the Cagignano, Malvasia Nera and the Sardinian variety Bovale. Similarly structured is Korem, from Bovale, Carignano and a little Cannanou. Most wines should be drunk young but Korem and Turriga usually need plenty more bottle-age after release; the Turriga is best with 10 years age.

New is "Is Solinas" which is almost entirely Carignano from 15ha of new vineyards in the Golfo di Palmas. Seemingly more modern in style, it is perfumed and refined than either Korem or Turriga. Its intense black fruit core will still need a minimum of 5-6 years to unfurl. SerraLori is a rose made from a mix of grapes.
