Winemaker's Notes:

Santadi's 2007 Carignano del Sulcis Tre Torri is a beguiling wine imbued with the essence of sweet candied fruit, herbs, mint and spices. It offers notable expressiveness and complexity at this level, along with the weight to stand up to richly flavored foods.
My Notes:

About Cantina Santadi:

Founded in 1960 in Sardinia and counting 988 acres of prime, gently rolling soil reaching out to the sea, Cantina Santadi is run under the strictest, most quality-based criteria.

The arenaceous terrain of Sulcis’ coastline is unique in that pre-phylloxera rootstock survives and thrives: the finely textured, wind-swept sand naturally prevents phylloxera from depositing its eggs!

Add to this one of Italy's legendary and brilliant oenologists, Piero Cella... and what you have can only be a range of true Sardinian gems.
