"Ruby red with a nose that suggests vanilla and well-articulated fruit. Harvested from old bush-trained vines in the harsh, dry conditions of the Sulcis district on the southwestern Sardinian coast. Aged for three years in oak barrels, with a palate that is fruit forward and lightly spicy, medium bodied with complexity on the finish." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
This 2012 Riserva spent a whopping three years in French barriques and some additional months in bottle before its release, almost unheard-of for an $11 bottle! This extra aging time brings in more richness to the final wine, with a soft, creamy roundness to the flavors of dried dark fruit and clove spice. The oak is well-integrated and allows the sweet fruit to stand tall, drinking like an edgy Merlot or a stylish version Malbec with the punch turned way up.
"Bright red. Rich and almost sweet red fruit and spices on the nose and palate. Sweet and creamy on entry, then slightly tough with noteworthy tannic bite, but there’s enough fruit lurking beneath the tannic cloak that I think all this really needs is a little time in the cellar/bottle. Very serious Carignano wine that eschews the easy sweetness and softness typical of many wines made with this variety providing instead something more interesting, bigger and more structured than usual. Drinking window: 2018 - 2022." —Ian D'Agata, Vinous
