Argiolas Senes Cannonau 2016
"Senes" Cannonau Riserva is deep purple in appearance. The wine is both structured (with firm acid and ripe tannins) and soft/velvety at the same time. Rich aromas of sweet blackberry and prune mingle with Mediterranean herbs and sweet cooking spices like cinnemon and nutmeg. Persistence of flavor throughout the finish underscores the high quality of this limited production wine. The suppleness and warmth of "Senes" predisposition the wine to work well with hearty fare like stews and braised or roasted meat-based dishes.
Bright ruby. Ripe but lively and easygoing aromas of strawberry, milk chocolate and licorice. Sweet, suave and fine-grained, with a distinctly creamy character to the red fruit and milk chocolate flavors. Well-integrated acidity keeps this plush Cannonau from coming off as heavy or one dimensional. Closes with very good length.
