Sella & Mosca Marchese di Villamarina 2004

Sella & Mosca Marchese di Villamarina 750ml 2004     
Sku: 1585653*

At tastings and contests in Europe and beyond, this super-premium Cabernet Sauvignon from Sardinia has taken critics by storm. In 1994 it made a spectacular debut, when it won the hotly contested category of Italian Reds for the Future at the 10th Annual Wine Challenge hosted by Wine, a top U.K. wine publication; rivals included Tuscany’s Sassicaia. Successive vintages have gone on to earn an extraordinary collection of no less than seven Tre Bicchiere designations from Gambero Rosso, Italy’s most influential wine magazine.

Tasting notes
Color - Rich, majestic red. Bouquet - Intense and mellow with remarkable red fruit fragrances Taste - Classic flavors of Cabernet with accents of vanilla, black currant, soft wood tannins with a lingering finish

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Jun 2010)
The 2004Marchese di Villa Marina is Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged in French oak barrels and larger casks. It is an attractive, mid-weight red laced with plums, dark cherries, sweet herbs, licorice, smoke and mint. Delicate, silky tannins frame the long, delicate finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.

Wine maker notes
From the Marchese di Villamarina single vineyard on the Sella & Mosca estate. Vines were initially planted in this vineyard in the late 1950s. Replanting is being conducted in gradual stages, so as to maintain the overall longevity of these vines. The soil is rich in iron, clay and sand from the pre-historic era.

Technical notes

Aging: The wine is matured 18 months in small French oak casks, followed by a further 12 months in large oak barrels. After bottling, it is aged an additional 18 months prior to release.

Food pairing
A match for top quality steaks, red meats and game.
