Cantina di Santadi Carignano del Sulcis Riserva Rocca Rubia 2009

Member Review by vino in love:

Prior to drinking the wine was decanted for around two hours In the glass, Rocca Rubia had a deep cherry color – almost black. On the nose, there was a heavy aroma blackberries and blueberries, a bit of vanilla, some leather and hints of vanilla. Alcohol by volume was label listed at 14%. After taking a sip, I noticed mellow tannins and tasted dark fruits. Rocca Rubia had a great structure. It was full-bodied and had a lingering finish.

The Cantina di Santadi Winery is located in the Sulcis area, in South-western Sardinia, just a few miles as the crow flies from the dazzling beaches and white sand dunes of Porto Pino. It was established in 1960, and after some start-up difficulties, a new management gave it a decisive boost, driven by strong determination which fanned enthusiasm and passion. Thus the Winery embarked on an ambitious programme, adopting new strategies and clear targets, streamlining its operations and issuing coherent guidelines to its member grape growers. The foremost aim was to stake operations on quality bottled wines, especially typical reds, enhancing and promoting the primary local cultivar: carignano, while not forgetting white grapes with a distinguished tradition in Sardinia, such as vermentino, nuragus and nasco. Winemaking technique and wine selection were also perfected, by securing the consultancy of international wine expert Giacomo Tachis, whose arrival at the Winery was a major turning point. The grapes grown in erect shrub vineyards (Latin vineyard) produce wines based on the carignano cultivar, with rich, expansive aroma and taste, noble tannins and a perfect balance between acid-organic elements, alcohol and polyphenols.
