Reviews

Wine Spectator - July 2006 - 92 points

"Bright red with plum and dried flower character on the nose. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a long, long, caressing finish. This wine shows class and length. This is the best Turriga ever."

Wine Spectator - October 31, 2013 - 91 points

“Argiolas’ structured Turriga Isola dei Nuraghi 2007 sets the benchmark for Cannonau, adding 5 percent each of Malvasia Nera for acidity, Bovale for tannins and Carignano for complexity.”
