Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red, verging on garnet with complex notes of ripe blackberries, blueberries, mellow spices, myrtle, tobacco, and chocolate.

James Suckling- 92 Points

A very attractive Sardinian red that combines great ripe plums with a hot, dry-earth character and has a very food-friendly balance of ripeness and soft tannins. Drink now with autumn or winter dishes.

COMMENTARY: Is this Grenache—Garnacha from Spain—or its Cannonau from Sardegna? Some say that this Italian grape is the same as Grenache, but some are not so sure. The important reality is that the 2015 Santadi Noras Cannonau di Sardegna is quite appealing. TASTING NOTES. This wine is not for the faint of heart; it packs some power. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit, dried tobacco, and savory spices should pair it well with a rosemary-infused, black pepper accented rotisserie leg of lamb.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate-91Points

The 2015 Cannonau di Sardegna Noras is in fact made with 90% Cannonau and 10% Carignano. This is a terrific mid-level wine that shows good value and an accessible style that makes it perfect for just about any homemade pasta, especially a Sardinian malloreddus alla campidanese: a shell-shaped pasta with a sausage and pecorino ragù. The wine offers pretty primary fruit with blackberry, wild cherry and rose, all backed by subtle smoke and wet earth. This vintage delivers a very ripe, succulent and fruity character. It's good fun all around.

Wine Spectator-90 Points
This round, medium-bodied red is well-knit and balanced, with supple layers of pureed black cherry, plum tart and spiced orange flavor framed by creamy tannins. Elegant. Drink now through 2024.
