In “Italy, Sardinia: New Releases,” Monica Larner reviews:

ARGIOLAS Turriga Isola dei Nuraghi IGT 2013 – 93 points

“his is a benchmark wine in Sardinia. The 2013 Turriga flows from the bottle with sun-drenched generosity and plum-like ripeness. This celebrated blend is composed of 85% Cannonau, 5% Carignano, 5% Bovale and 5% Malvasia Nera. It ages in oak for up to two years. This vintage most certainly delivers the goods with intensity and a proud sense of exuberance. Those black fruit nuances are smooth, velvety and soft. Exotic spice, tobacco and leather reach just the right level without going overboard. The mouthfeel is broad and all encompassing.”
