2017 Deperu Holler Isola dei Nuraghi Rosso Familia

$28

Familia is a blend of organically farmed Cannonau with the local Muristellu grape, fermented naturally and aged in concrete and steel tanks. This inky black beast features aromas of violets, spice, and blackberry; loads of  flesh on the midpalate; and a grippy tannin suavely wrapped in a cloak of generous, juicy fruit. It begs for grilled meats but also works well with roast octopus.

Red Blends Wines

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

Sardinia, Italy

Sardinia is an beautiful Italian Island located in the Mediterranean Sea. The majority of vineyards on Sardinia lie on the western side of the Island, however wines can be found all over due the mixed soil types throughout. The white grape variety, Vermentino, takes a home in Sardinia as this grape benefits from the sun reflections from the sea. You’ll also find these hidden gem white grapes: Torbato, a speciality wine in the sub-region of Alghero; Nuragus, cherished by those who love light whites with citrus and green apple fruit; Semidano, an elegant white with floral hints; and Moscato. For red grape varieties, keep your eye on these: Cagnulari (AKA Graciano), Malvasia, Vernaccia, Carignano (AKA Carignan), and Cannonau (AKA French Grenache or Spanish Garnacha).

Sardinia may be known to outsiders for its stunning rocky coves and inviting turquoise waters, but the Mediterranean coastline only tells part of the story. The island’s interior is just as beautiful and untouched, consisting of craggy mountainsides covered in wild flowers and shrubbery, far removed from the surrounding postcard-worthy blue waters. In their vineyards near the town of Perfugas, Carlo Deperu and his wife, Tatiana Holler, cultivate primarily Vermentino (under the Vermentino di Gallura DOCG) but also some red varieties from a fascinating, steep terroir that combines chalk, granite, limestone, and volcanic elements.
