La Cala DOC, 2013
A favorite of the jetsetters at Sardinia’s chic resorts, La Cala is the ultimate definition of the Vermentino grape. It is romantically named for a small, secluded cove fringed by violet colored thistles on the edge of the Sella & Mosca estate. Few wines rival La Cala for its exceptional affinity with seafood, thanks to the very subtle presence of a natural marine salinity in the wine, credited to the Mediterranean location of Sella & Mosca’s Vermentino vineyards.
Cannonau di Sardegna DOC, 2012
Bright ruby color with purple hues, the aromas project ripe red berry, including strawberry and raspberry jam. On the palate: coffee, spices and herbs, including an aroma of violets, plummy fruit flavors and aristocratic oak overtone. Full, round, fruit forward, consumer friendly taste profile. Oak-aged for two years in large Slavonian casks with several additional months in the bottle. Medium-bodied for food-friendly pairings.
