In a great place - dark cigar rapper, meaty and dark fruit all over. Fantastic and big wine.

Quite rich and definitely some sweet tones. Dried red fruits dominant. Excellent acidity and finish. Really nice wine.

Made by the sassicaia team in sardinaia. This is a show stopper for sure. Hard to believe I'm selling this wine at $35 w free shipping. It's insane and im not just saying that because I sell it. It is that good. Full of brambly black fruit. Perfectly integrated and beautiful already. Give it a couple years to fully shine.

I love carignane. Red berry, leather, and herb. Dark coffee tannins on the end. This is lovely. Not very long but it's world class!

Sassicaia roots in Sardinia... I Had no idea how good this wine really is until I tried it the other night. Holy cow this is a heck of a wine. It bears some rusticity but it is clean to the bone. Aromas of blackberry, pencil lead, iron, fruitcake, leather and spice. with some savory notes as well. (With some time being open I find dried herbs, cured meats and the like) This beauty has a long finish of dark mocha chocolate and roasted coffee. Out of this world..... I carry this wine for a song, so let me know if you've had it or want any..:

The finish, "wham bam thank you ma'am!" Tobacco laced orange peels! Odd!

Delicious and classic Carignane, that was a little spicy, with great fruit and a brightness that made it a great food wine.

In a great spot. What a unique partnership between Santadi and Tenuta San Guido... A little green from the younger 10% Cab Sauv, but integrated and complex

Very rewarding, two more years in bottle it'll be stellar.
