Reply to "1996 Terre Brune (Santadi)"

Andreadago, I can buy the Terre Brune 1998 here for around EUR 32 and the Turriga 1998 for EUR 38. I still prefer the Turriga and I think it is a buy for this price. I'm not sure with the Terre Brune, as you said I've tasted the 1997 and it didn't convince me. Maybe I give the 1998 another try.
Most astonishing is, that in Sardegna, you cannot find either of these wines except in some enotecas which have ridiculous prices. An example: In Santa Teresa di Gallura a bottle of Terre Brune costs EUR 45, a bottle of Turriga EUR 70 - 150, depending on the vintage. The best restaurant in the zone, the "La Gritta" in Palau sells the Turriga for EUR 100 - 300, depending on the vintage. That's is far away from what it's worth and double ridiculous because this wine does not age very well. The 1991 and 1992 are already over the top, the 1993 is extremly mature and soon over as well.
