2016 Capichera Assaje Carignano Isola dei Nuraghi Sardinia IGT

$84.95

This wine gets its unique personality from the most famous native black grape varieties of Sardinia. The bouquet is sweetly vivid with sun-kissed black currant and black cherry alongside anise and eucalyptus. The texture is plush and inviting, carrying deep flavors of cocoa, clove and nutmeg dusted over concentrated, ripe black fruit. Tannins are structured but approachable and the finish is supremely long.
