This wine will save you money


I received an email this week from a friend, a passionate home cook and ever-increasing wine lover, that he already drank his Thanksgiving day wines.  If you find yourself in this predicament or you need to supply a large volume of wine to your family and friends then look no further than the 2013 Sella & Mosca,Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva.  I recommended that you buy the previous vintage by the case and I make the same recommendation with the 2013.  Already with bottle age, it should deliver deep yet lively flavor over the course of the next year.  You may pick this up from the front rack at MacArthur Beverages.

2013 Sella & Mosca,Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva – $13
Imported by Palm Bay International.  This is 100% Cannonau that was fermented in stainless steel then aged for two years in large Slavonian oak barrels.  Alcohol 13%.  The wine opens up quickly, within half an hour, to reveal dark red, grippy and spiced mouth filling flavor.  The wine has moderate roundness, acidity driven strength such that it is lively on the tongue, and a sense of dry firmness in the finish.  It should develop over the next half year.  *** Now – 2019.
