Earthy, dark and powerful. Bouquet of dark fruits- black cherry, dried blueberry, and raisin. A fine balance between strength and grace, showing leather saddle, tar, cedar, black licorice and deeply perfumed with rose petals. It's nose and palate are rustic, with high acidity and tannin. The years have been good to it, softening the tannin and rounding the edges. Although still big enough to stand up to tri-tip & stilton! 90% Carignane 10% Syrah.

At Macchialina on the 28th. Contains a little Syrah (15%). Very well-made modern style, but I like my Carignano to be more wild & untamed.

Cantina Santadi, Shardana, Carignano del Sulcis e piccola percentuale di Syrah. 10 anni
Che bella sorpresa! Profumi speziati , cannella,biscotti al ginger tostati con zucchero grezzo di canna.. Scorze d'arancio..Natale..la beva e' snella con un'acidità succosa, tannini morbidi ma di carattere, bel finale . Il formaggio di pecora grasso e profumato di erba e casera completa l'assaggio!

Lush blue fruit, great complexity and woody earth. Lush but retains old world food pairing qualities. Unique.
