RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The estate's 2005 Carignano del Sulcis Superiore Terre Brune is once again one of the most fascinating wines being made on the island today. A rich melange of red cherries, tobacco, earthiness, cedar, licorice and spices emerges from this layered, texturally beautiful wine. Feminine yet masculine, delicate yet powerful, it's all there in the glass as this magnificent wine reveals its pedigree. Readers will not want to miss this fabulous Terre Brune. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.

Cantina Santadi, Sardinia, Italy
2005 Carignano del Sulcis Terre Brune
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.

Carignan

View all wine

Responsible for some of the most stunning old vine red wine on the planet, Carignan has an amazing capacity to survive dry, arid climates and still produce lovely, mouthwatering wine. In Spain it goes by the name of Mazuelo and while it may have originated there in the province of Aragón (with Grenache), its popularity lies elsewhere. It spread across countries that border the Mediterranean Sea, becoming ubiquitous throughout the south of France. Today it flourishes as a blending grape in the Languedoc-Roussillon and also growns in Sardinia, mainland Italy, Cyprus, Turkey, Croatia and Northern Africa. Likewise, producers in the New World—namely California and Chile—bottle excellent single-varietal Carignan wines.

In the Glass

This is a medium-bodied wine with dried cranberry and raspberry fruit. It can take on an attractive savory quality with alluring notes of baking spice, black tea, black licorice or earth.

Perfect Pairings

Try Carignan with seared ahi, roasted turkey or duck, lamb gyros or chops, aged Gouda or Manchego and cured meats.

Sommelier Secret

Historically Carignan did not enjoy the respect that it does today. In the mid 20th century, Carignan covered nearly 140,000 ha in Algeria, where it was made into low quality bulk and blending wine to supply mass-market demand.
