The Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi blends crushed violets with hints of blackberry and spice to form an alluring bouquet. This is a feminine and understated wine that showcases forest berries with floral undertones, minerals, and juicy acids. It ends cleanly and balanced with lingering notes of sweet plum and liquorice. Although this vintage does not have the power that I usually associate with this wine, it is a well-balanced expression that will excel at the table.
