Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer DOLIANOVA
NEW in Vintages, this enormous, extracty blend of 90% Cannonau with 10% of local grapes has an extremely deep still-youthful intense purple-tinged ruby colour. The nose is intense and very complex with warm, slightly baked, ripe Damson plums along some faintly savoury, cedary notes. Dry, full bodied, dense, rich, ripe, harmonious, roasted ripe plums, black cherry and cassis flavours with a long, lingering, faintly earthy, cedary finish. Great with game, especially duck. It has 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L202180 on the back label. CSPC 19872

TASTING NOTE: The 2013 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva Blasio is actually a blend of 90% Cannonau with 10% complementary red grapes. This is the top-shelf wine in the Cantine di Dolianova portfolio and it shows. This wine offers a deeper level of complexity and nuance with wild berry aromas piled high onto tar, scorched earth and a touch of pretty balsam herb. That complexity has been carefully nudged along, but the wine's age and those elegant tertiary notes are already beginning to show. Pair this wine with game meats, such as a coniglio alla cacciatora made with big green olives. Drink date: 2019-2026. Score - 91 (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Nov. 27, 2019) Price $ 31.95
