Costera shows the typicity of the Cannonau grape with flavors of very ripe strawberries, black cherries, herbs, and spices. The warmth and intense sunlight of southern Sardinia can be seen and felt in the wine with unexpectedly deep color and fullness on the palate. French oak barriques provide rounded tannins and flavors of vanilla.

A juicy but umami nose on this wine begins with black cherries, blackberries and plums. Aromas then turn to soy sauce and salty seaweed crackers. Saline notes remain prominent on the palate alongside dark berries mixed with roots and soil, with tannins standing at attention.
