    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sella & Mosca's Tanca Farra is an innovative blend of Cannonau and Cabernet Sauvignon. Cannonau is a variety that has long thrived in Sardinia, while Cabernet is a more recent introduction to the island. Sella & Mosca has experimented with Cabernet since the late 1890s and planted Cabernet vines in its highly acclaimed Marchese di Villamarina vineyard in the late 1950s. The name Tanca Farra ("Iron Earth" in the Sardinian dialect) refers to the high iron content of the soil in this portion of the estate, a factor credited with a conspicuous role in the resulting complexity and depth of this wine.

    One of Italy's most impressive and progressive wine estates, this impeccably maintained 1,600-acre property in Sardinia is credited around the world with placing Sardinian wines firmly on the international wine-lover's map. Moreover, it includes the second largest contiguous vineyard in Italy. Acclaimed for world-class wines made from Vermentino and Cannonau grapes, Sella & Mosca is also behind the single-vineyard Marchese di Villamarina, among Italy's greatest and most sought-after Cabernets.

    Blend: 50% Cannonau (Grenache), 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
