Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a deep, deep purple with ruby reflections indicating concentration, intensity and complexity. Its black cherry notes are ripely confirmed on the nose, where fruit, leather and game are laced with subtle spice. On the palate, lingering aromas of overripe cherries, well integrated oak and spices, soft, smooth texture and layered structure, with a very long finish.
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.
