Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)

Mandrolisai symbolizes a land and its wine in one name. The estate was named after one of the innermost regions of Sardinia, whose geographical and climatic features (scarce rainfalls and long summers) come together to produce very unique wines. The vineyards are situated at the foot of the highest mountain ranges on the island. The village records show that there are three times as many people over one hundred years old living in Sorgono, Sardinia than anywhere else in western Europe. A group of researchers from the Queen Mary University of London give some credit to the Polyphenol content of the area's red. The famous red called Kent'annos (hundred years) is therefore referred to as "the fountain of youth" wine. Mandrolisai produces more than half the wine made for the Wine Growers Cooperative of Mandrolisai, established in 1950, sited in Sorgono. The Mandrolisai Rosso Superiore is a blend of Cannonau, Muristeddu (Bovale Sardo) and Monica grapes, and the wine is of ruby red color with garnet inflections. It greets you with an intense aroma that is round and fruity, and compliments with a palate that is dry, warm, full, tannic, balanced and well structured. Best paired with appetizers, pasta dishes, game, red meats, sausages, or a mature Pecorino. Recommended to decant for one hour before enjoying.

Reviewer: Gordon Giles from Half Moon Bay, CA United States  
If you like wines that deliver lots of favors this one is for you medium body red with  a layered fruity and spicy palate with robust tannins.
