2011 Filieri Cannonau di Sardegna (Francesco Congiu / Handout / April 3, 2014)

From: Sardinia, Italy

Price: $13

Serve with: Pasta with red sauce, osso buco

This deep, earthy red wine from Sardinia is delightfully distinctive. It's a full-bodied, plummy, spicy wine with hints of black pepper, Mexican chocolate sauce (mole) and pine resin. It's an excellent value for the price and is very drinkable now.
