This is Grenache, called Cannonau in Sardinia. The Riserva designation indicates two years ageing before release including at least six months in barrel. Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has nice cherries with slight herbal notes. Medium bodied. On the palate, there is a slightly bitter note on the attack. Lots of cherry fruit. Medium tannins. Slightly thin on the finish. This drinks nicely on its own but works better with food. A classic pizza wine.
