Description

Argiolas Turriga is a robust and very intense red, an icon and flag of the Sardinian wines. Obtained from Cannonau grapes and other local varieties, it is matured for 24 months in barriques reaching a perfect state of ripeness. The aromas recall the berries, Mediterranean herbs and black pepper, while the taste is round, rich and persistent

Enticing aromas of ripe dark-skinned fruit, fragrant purple flower, Mediterranean scrub and dark spice escape the glass. On the firmly structured palate, taut fine-grained tannins accompany Marasca cherry, cassis, tobacco and star anise. The assertive finish closes on a note of roasted coffee bean. 93 Points - Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
