Argiolas Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva DOC Senes

Argiolas is the foremost wine estate on the island of Sardinia producing archetypal wines from native varietals. Antonio Argiolas, who died in 2009 at the age of 102, inherited seven acres of vines from his father in 1938 and was the first on the island to convert to modern viticulture to pursue quality over quantity. His sons, Franco and Giuseppe, replanted the vineyards in the 1980s with the goal of reducing yields and focusing exclusively on Sardinian grapes.
The vines for "Senes" grow in the Costera estate, which is located in the Siurgus Donigala area to the north of Cagliari in southern Sardegna.
Wine Production

"Senes" is vinified in Stainless Steel tanks before being transferred to fiberglass-lined Concrete where the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. A full year of ageing in barriques is followed by an additional 12 months' refinement in bottle.
Tasting Notes

"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.
Food Pairing

The suppleness and warmth of "Senes" predisposition the wine to work well with hearty fare like stews and braised or roasted meat-based dishes.
