"The 2013 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva Blasio is actually a blend of 90% Cannonau with 10% complementary red grapes. This is the top-shelf wine in the Cantine di Dolianova portfolio and it shows. This wine offers a deeper level of complexity and nuance with wild berry aromas piled high onto tar, scorched earth and a touch of pretty balsam herb. That complexity has been carefully nudged along, but the wine's age and those elegant tertiary notes are already beginning to show. Pair this wine with game meats, such as a coniglio alla cacciatora made with big green olives. Some 50,000 bottles were made." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Colour:
ruby red with light garnet hues as it ages.

Nose:
intense, long-lasting, ethereal, heady, with balsamic notes and hints of forest fruits.

Taste:
full-bodied, round and velvety on the palate. The finish is very persistent and clean.
