  • A good warming wine, generous mouthfeel, and medium-weight palate. The nose and palate are cedary and herbal and paired well with pasta and meatballs.

  • This is a marvelous bottle and cheap as well. First night there was predominately a slightly astringent mineral/graphite quality coming through that I found interesting, pleasant and provided a long finish. No fruitiness was detected. After 24 hrs in a split bottle it had changed considerably. It reminded strongly of shiraz. I do not care for shiraz at all and it was a bit off putting at first, but smoothed out a bit and I did enjoy it. A very interesting wine. I would recommend not keeping it overnight unless you are a shiraz fan.

  • Very nice, light, a little spice on the palate. Delicate nose and some anise aromas. Easy to drink but good structure as well. Ready to drink now.

  • A fantastic PQR at this price point (7 eur). Gives an impression of woodiness. This Carignano del Sulcis is earthy, leathery, with additional hints of dark fruit and wet forest on the palate. very enjoyable now, but sure has still some time of cellaring ahead. Dark red in color with tinges of brown and completely opaque. The nose is very aromatic, full of woody scents. On the palate, dark jammy fruit and baking spices with a final tastes of dark chocolate and burnt coffee. Absolutely worth a try

  • Fantastic, No fruit, but more earthy notes, spice (clove?). Perfect to drink. Don't think it would gain anything from more aging.
