Costera Cannonau di Sardegna DOC 2000

Made from 100% Cannonau grown in the Costera vineyard. In order to achieve greater color extraction and flavor concentration, the juice is macerated with the skins for 12-15 days, with soft but frequent pump-overs. The wine is aged in French barriques for six to eight months prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

The intense, ruby red color of this wine tends toward orange with age. The full bouquet of sweet black cherry, pepper, and licorice is typical of the Cannonau grape. Warm and full bodied on the palate with excellent texture, ripe fruit flavors and pleasan

Food Pairing

Costera is an excellent food wine that is best enjoyed with roast beef with herbs, filet mignon, stews and sharp cheeses.
