Mixed Case Bottle 8 LoHud Wine of the Week: Feudi della Medusa Cannonau di Sardegna 2008


For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case from Piermont Fine Wine & Spirits.

This is bottle 8 in our series. To see the others click here: Mixed Case from Piermont Fine Wine.

This wine has aromas and flavors of black fruit, minerals and leather, and you can smell the Mediterranean as soon as you open the bottle. Goes with: both meat and fish. Region: Sardinia, Italy.
