Winemaker's Notes

(From 1997 Vintage) Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2002 Intense ruby red, lighter around the edges with age. The nose is spicy with hints of eucalyptus. Big and round with excellent structure from balanced tannins. Long and spicy finish. A powerful wine. Recommended with roasted and grilled meats, particularly roasted lamb flavored with herbs.

  • Antonio Galloni
    (From 2003 Vintage) "The estate's 2003 Turriga is a more linear, structured wine than the Korem. A bold, racy wine, it reveals sweeping elegance in its focused black fruit, bacon fat and wild herb flavors. This gorgeously pure Sardinian red will benefit from another year or two in bottle after which it should drink beautifully for at least another decade. Turriga is a single-vineyard blend of 85% Cannonau and 15% Malvasia Nera, Carignano and Bovale Sardo. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018."
