Yes’ worst album

Sella & Mosca 2009 Alghero Terre Bianche Torbato (Sardinia) – Vivid fruit in the white/lime green/yellow spectrum, seeking to be bright but stumbling a bit under a little excess weight. It’s not a complex wine, nor is it (I think) intended to be, but it requires a fairly constant chill to avoid a bit of over-belt sag. (6/12)

So farra, so gooda

Sella & Mosca 2002 Alghero “Tanca Farra” (Sardinia) – Swaggering, but the calloused mountain man and the fancy suit don’t necessarily cohere. Angry, dark-souled fruit with a fierce lash of skin and strap. It’s not overly big, though it is thickened by ambition, but the essential core of this wine survives its commercial acculturation without taking too much damage. (8/10)
