Bright ruby. Ripe but lively and easygoing aromas of strawberry, milk chocolate and licorice. Sweet, suave and fine-grained, with a distinctly creamy character to the red fruit and milk chocolate flavors. Well-integrated acidity keeps this plush Cannonau from coming off as heavy or one dimensional. Closes with very good length.
Winery
"Senes" Cannonau Riserva is deep purple in appearance. The wine is both structured (with firm acid and ripe tannins) and soft/velvety at the same time. Rich aromas of sweet blackberry and prune mingle with Mediterranean herbs and sweet cooking spices like cinnemon and nutmeg. Persistence of flavor throughout the finish underscores the high quality of this limited production wine.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
