Intense, then fruity, then intense Carignan. The wine starts with an overpowering alcohol level, then tastes like blueberries, and ends with pepper. This wine will go well with steak. The nose is excellent and the best part of this wine, with intense berry and flower aroma.

Aged wine, looks clean, deep ruby color, unable to see through. Many sediments. Very huge tears. It is clean on the nose with pronounced intensity, smells of heavy plum, prune, licorice, slight tobacco, earthy and floral. On palate, there is no sweetness, medium to high acidity, high but smooth tannin, strong alcohol, full body with long finish. It's a very very good wine, open it right at its peak, won't necessarily become better if aged more years! But, you never know :)

Full but disciplined and tight. Round feel. Had some age in it.

2006 Vintage, needs decanting-,throws a lot of sediment. Pairs well with food, without food is very hot. First nose was paint thinner with hints of licorice & herbs. Overall spicy, full berry fruits, & herbal. Color is still bold with very slight tints of orange. Tannins full but balanced. #sardegna #terrebrune #carignano #italianFWT #winepw#italianwine
