Over many generations, the Argiolas family has worked diligently to become the leader in Sardinian enology. In many ways, Turriga embodies the fulfillment of this goal. Made from 85% Cannonau, with 5% each of Carignano, Bovale Sardo and Malvasia Nera, all meticulously hand-harvested from the Turriga estate in the countryside of Selegas-Piscina Trigus. This wine is the flagship red of the Argiolas estate.

Tasting Notes

Rich garnet in color, Argiolas Turriga offers notes of crushed blueberries, black cherries, bittersweet chocolate, tobacco, roasted coffee and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate, this hearty red is concentrated, yet refined and elegant, framed by ripe, firm tannins and is full-bodied with a velvety mouth-feel.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with roasted duck, pork or beef.  Also works well with rich sauces, such as mole sauce, or sharp, aged cheeses.
