The pinnacle wine, exclusively from the best terroirs and grape selections, lengthily aged. 95% Carignano and 5% Bovaleddu, this fabulous red is so extract-rich and sugary the must has a hard time beginning fermentation! Maceration on the skins goes on for about 16 days, and élevage in Allier and Tronçais oak barriques lasts c. 18 months, previous to a further year and a half of bottle age. Cellar life: 7-8 years.
The 2006 Carignano del Sulcis Superiore Terre Brune is an explosive, ripe wine graced with exquisite finesse in its dark fruit. It possesses considerable aromatic complexity as well as firm yet well-balanced tannins, both of which add considerable pedigree. Dark red fruit, flowers, licorice and sweet herbs are some of the nuances that are woven into the vivid, textured finish. This is a brilliant effort from Santadi. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.
Complex, showing mature notes of game, leather and caramelized mushrooms that follow through to a dark, supple core of plum sauce and dried wild berry. Well-balanced, with fine tannins and a long, savory finish.
Deep saturated ruby. Expressive aromas of red cherry, blueberry and ink, lifted by musky spices. Sweet, smooth and very intensely flavored, with an opulent texture to its superripe red cherry, raspberry liqueur and strawberry jam flavors. Not quite as fine-grained as the 2007 Rocca Rubia but more luscious and soft in style, with perhaps a hint of residual sugar on the long, smooth, lightly peppery finish.
