2014 Pensamentu, Cantina Sorres

How often do I drink Cannonau? Well, almost never. But after tasting this wine I think I should drink more.
A tasting sample from Divinum Wine.

2014 Pensamentu, Cantina Sorres
This wine comes from Sennori, in the northwest of Sardinia. The nose is young, fresh and floral with notes of sweet/sour cherries, road dust, minerals, herbs and dry licorice. A high, fine nose, sligthly reminiscent of a fine Sangiovese. Very, very good.
The taste is cool, fresh, light on its feet yet with substance and character, with notes of red currants, herbs, minerals and a tiny touch of saltiness, in a open, inviting and gulpable way. A fine lenght with a energetic acidity and medium bodied tannins. 15% alcohol but feels like 12%. This I really like. For drinking now and the coming 6+ years.
92p   (tasted 2018/01)
