Tenute Soletta, Cannonau di Sardegna (Sardinia, Italy) “Sardo” 2016

($24):  This Cannonau (also known as Garnacha or Grenache), displays a dark, haunting profile with slightly funky, in a nice way, accents.  Dark fruit flavors are apparent and balance the savory elements in this chewy wine.  This is a weighty, but not heavy, wine perfect for a hearty meal on a winter day or to serve with robust fare from the grill.
