2004 Cantina di Santadi Carignano del Sulcis Superiore Terre Brune

more

2/3/2016 - Louvin wrote: 90 points

quick decant after being open for several hours, the nose is red fruited and showing notes of bordeaux type wine, where this wine departs from the norm is the palate which has red fruits throughout and a large streak, almost too much, of vibrant herbs, not green, but wildly entering the dominance of flavors. An interesting taste but perhaps too much. A long and sweet and somewhat tannic/sharp finish.

Wine needs patient and some air, quite rustic at the beginning. After decanting and another hour and more it comes to the truth. Wine has warming aromas, character like an Amarone but needs a compagny, cheese or meat, if so, the wine is a pleasure.

[Tasted at Garibaldi Marienplatz]
Much less aggressive, acidic and eccentric than the 2009. Still a slight yummy barnyard note in there, all the herbal stuff, the leather and the licorice, but the cherry comes out more and it is actually a decent sipper, not just a food wine as before. Overall not as outstanding in the sense of eccentric as a food wine as the 2009 but better as allrounder. If the 2009 was a wild animal, this is a dressage horse.

Consider this judgement with caution, based on tasting only 0,03 l.
Good qpr !

Very nice with a little air. Somewhat rustic with brambly blue fruits and some slightly rough tannins. On second night this was smooth as glass, with balsamic notes that were captivating. Great bargain, but next bottle will wait a couple more years.

See my first tasting note. This time there is too much cigar/cedar box. Finish too short and a bit harsh. Just past its peak. It is starting to loose its flesh. Too alcoholic, too. Drink in the next 3 years. The half full bottle (vacuumed) after having spent some days in the fridge has improved a bit: Now there is more fruit. Dried prune soaked in water to be specific. A hint of cherries, too. Hence 2 points up.

Nice wine, but somehow a funky nose and an oxidated taste... didn't pass by

Just a hint of orange on the edge of a opaque dark ruby colour. Blueberry preserves and aged character on the nose. The tannins are firm but fine and exceptionally well balanced to the substantial fruit still present. Very complex with a medium long finish. With I had more!

Wow, very ripe, but also loads of structure to support it. Nose of ripe blackberry and french oak. Rich mid palate. Good grip on the finish. Reminds a bit of some of the better Chilean cabs. Not my favorite wine style, but done well for the price range, and to accompany rich stews, this is what is needed. Did best out of a big Riedel Bordeaux glass (smaller glasses created to much focus on the alcohol and ripeness). Held up well to very rich braised beef shank.

P.S. Wow again as I look through the community notes, which are all over the place. It looks like so many bottles were flawed or cooked. I find ripeness, but nothing stewed or candied in my sample, and the ripeness is supported by some moderate acidity and a heavy doss of wood tannins. I also have the impression this bottle could have been held another 3 years easily.

Shadana is an Empson cuvee made by Santadi.
85% Carignano and 15% Shiraz. Concentrated aromas. But getting out there in it's fruit, plum and verging into raisin. big and rich for the Zin drinker.
Shardana are the ancient people of this region of Sardinia.

Double decanted; no sediment; clear cherry-red color. Two hours later: Blueberries on the nose. Full-bodied dark fruit and straw on the palate, well balanced by acids. Lively tannins on a medium-length finish. An interesting and enjoyable wine which is drinking well now. At $27, a reasonable QPR.

Big, thick, almost overwhelming. Dark, port like flavors with a touch of red fruit. I might have called this blind as Portugeese. Fun bottle.

simple but effective Carignano from Santadi. Chocolate, smoke and liquorice above all. Some spices too. Unparalleled PQR at 6 eur. A piece of Sardegna in a glass

What a shame! There are three options:

1) Over the hill yet
2) An awful wine
3) Bad bottle

When opening the next bottle, I'll know the answer. Out of safety reasons, I'll open the next bottle just for myself, because this one really was a looser with my guests. As compensation I opened a 2006 Branas Grand Poujeaux (same price range and vintage) - and the crowd was cheering!

Looking at my last note, two years later this wine has really opened up. Has lots more time, give it a good decant. dark berry Palate, medium acidity. pretty much like you'd expect an italian carignan to taste!

Color seems a little brownish, nevertheless incredible showing. Brooding nose of berries, macchia, dried pineapple. Smoothened tannins, long finish, what a bottle after one or two bad btls during last years.
No decant, on Peak but should easily last Next 5 to 8 years.

Not so bad! Interesting, but different taste profile! Not a lot of complexity, but overall it went with the Hot Dogs and Mac n" cheese we had with it! I have had this and one other in my cellar since I had the First that I purchased at a Wine Club meeting in 2012! Probably would not seek out more, however, I think it's good to experience these odd wines made from uncommon grape varieties (even if they all had origins in ancient Roman wines!)

First bottle I have tried. Very enjoyable.....different, but I find it hard to articulate the tastes. However, I like different. Went well with pasta. Bought it as a value, and that it is. However, I would not give it the full 93 points from WA......at least right now. I suspect this one will evolve, but am not sure it will last until 2025. I plan on mine being long gone by then. Suggest a 2 hour decant.

Dark ruby in the glass.
Pleasant aromas of dark cherry, mocha. A bit of volatile acidity and alcoholic notes on the nose.
Full body, still tannic but enjoyable.
Pleasant bottle but not as others vintage are.
