Blend of 85% Carignano, 10% Cab Sauv & 5% Merlot, deep Ruby with aromas of ripe red fruits, floral and herb spice. On the palate flavors of ripe berries and currants, licorice, herb, cedar and black pepper. Fine soft tannins, long finish ending with fruit and cedar spice. Drinking well now.

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!

My Veronese restaurant friends tell me this is considered the Sassicaia of Sardegna. Not too far off (except in price!). Mostly Carignan I think.
