Turriga, Argiolas: an exceptional wine from Sardinia.

An exceptional red wine, Turriga has become the benchmark wine of the Sardinian wine region in just a few years. Produced by the Argiolas estate, this wine was first produced in 1988. Connoisseurs and wine professionals were quick to recognise the high quality of this wine and the richness of Sardinia's wine-growing potential.

Turriga, a unique blend.

This cuvée is made from a unique blend of local grape varieties, including Cannonau, which makes up the majority of Turriga and adds structure to the wine. It is complemented by Bovale, an endemic grape variety of the island, which brings generosity through its fruit. Carignan adds the necessary roundness and elegance, while Malvoisie Noire adds smoothness and sweetness.

A wine for those who appreciate powerful wines with intense aromas.

Ideal for connoisseurs of wines with intense aromas, Turriga reveals notes of blackberries and plums on the nose, with a spicy touch reminiscent of tobacco leaf and vanilla aromas. The wine is dense on the palate, with strong, full-bodied tannins. The elegant finish is powerful and intense, with notes of black fruit. Turriga goes perfectly with stewed meats, pasta and spicy sauces.
