James Suckling - "Lovely precision to this red with berries, nutmeg and hints of stones. Subtle dried meat, too. Medium body, pretty texture and a refined finish. Always excellent."  93pts

Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Fully saturated deep ruby. Leafy nuances and notes of sassafras dominate the deep but youthfully reticent dark red fruit on the nose. Then smooth and dense, with forward flavors of red cherry, dark plum, cassis, and aromatic herbs. Finishes very long and spicy, with peppery tannins and building complexity. For maximum enjoyment, put this away in the cellar and open it in three to four years only. This is a blend of Carignano, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon." 93pts

Wine Spectator - "Sleek and mouthwatering, this harmonious red features creamy tannins and layers of flavor, with black currant pâte de fruit, dried marjoram and smoky mineral notes accented by abundant ground white pepper, star anise and graphite details that play out on the finish. Carignano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2025." 91pts

Winemaker Notes
The quality of the Carignano grape is excellent in the Sulcis area, not only in terms of color, but also for the softness of its soluble compounds—from the tannins to the consistently low and elegant acidity and the smoothness of its main components. Its polyphenolic apparel is of a distinguishably sweet, extremely delicate, round tannin weave chromatically embroidered with refined anthocyanins. Color: lively, deep ruby red; nature’s gift of color. Perfume: complex scents of mature red fruits (mainly black cherry), spices, notes of liquorice and hints of myrtle. Taste: an elegant wine that shows exceptional workmanship.
