Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Turriga is the benchmark red wine of Sardinia, conceived by the Argiolas Family and Giacomo Tachis. The impetus was to create a great Sardinian wine capable of long aging using only Sardinian varietals. It is a blend of Cannonau, Malvasia Nera, Carignano, and Bovale Sardo with two years aging in French barriques. The Venus or ”Turriga” that graces the label was found in the vineyards of Argiolas in 1935.
