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.

Critical Acclaim

"From carignano grown in a mixture of clay, sand and limestone, this wine is aged in cement vats prior to bottling, so there's no oak to get in the way of the scents of wild thyme, coastal breezes and black, earthy fruit. It's a savory, mouthwatering red, lasting on elegant minerality. Levi Dalton, then sommelier at Convivio in NYC, suggested this would work well with a dish such as the restaurant's fusilli with braised pork shoulder, tomato and caciocavallo."

Learn About Santadi Map ItMap It

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.
