Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva 2006

I know we've reviewed this before - in fact twice, with very different views expressed. Now it's back on the shelves at ANBL, so why not give it a third review?  I like it just as much as I did last time - well, I'm not sure I'd give it 91+, but I would definitely give it a big thumbs up, so long as you like a fairly austere style.  But I would say that whether you like this wine is very much a matter of your personal tastes.  Iron Chef called it "an austere Chianti," and I'd say that pretty accurate.  The good news is that this time around the price has actually gone down - $18.99 instead of $24.99.  So, why not give it a try and let us know what you think?
(BTW, if you're searching for it on the ABNL site, it is misspelled as "Cannonnau").


  1. great wine for the price. I'm getting half a dozen this week. If you like wine that makes your teeth cringe on the first drink, this is one of those in my mind. We did some agrotourism in Tuscany two years ago and on the farm we drank the proprietors wine made from the vines in the back yard. This tasted like the same wine. Ah great memories.

  2. We've had two bad bottles since this one. There seems to be a great deal of bottle variation in this wine. I won't buy it again.
