Costera Argiolas 2010

Argiolas Costera 2010The 2010 Costera is a wonderful Sardinian wine from Argiolas and was given 90 points by The Wine Advocate.

It is produced from Grenache (Cannonau) grapes, which give this wine its dark ruby red color and full body.

The 2010 Costera has a nicely structured flavor profile of dark cherries and plum with spices and licorice. This wine has a nice round mouth feel with decent tannin structure, which makes this wine go well with steaks and lamb. This is an excellent Italian wine at this price.
