Report #6 The Wines of Southern Italy: From Quantity to Quality
"The 2004 Korem is a superb blend of 55 percent Bovale Sardo, 35 percent Carignano and 10 percent Cannonau. Deep opaque in color, it offers a richly textured and silky palate of blackberry, vanilla bean, cinnamon and allspice flavors with fine grained tannins on the finish."
ArgiolasView all from Argiolas
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. Joined by enologist Mariano Murru, the Argiolas family is today recognized as Sardinia's leading wine producer.
