Magnum Turriga IGT Isola dei Nuraghi, Argiolas
Magnum Turriga IGT Isola dei Nuraghi, Argiolas
The benchmark red wine of Sardinia conceived by the Argiolas family and Giacomo Tachis. It would be an understatement to call this wine 'iconic'. Turriga is a rare Italian gem. Aromas of Morello cherry, mulberry, blackcurrant. Full bodied and concentrated with firm, powerful tannins yet a refined sleek mouthfeel and a finish that never seems to end. Requires time in bottle to show its full complexity. The Turriga or Venus in Sardinian dialect was found in the Argiolas vineyards in 1935.
