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.

Great entry-level Sardinian red made with the Carignano grape. It's not too strong, has a beautiful ruby colour and works well with just about any food. It's smooth and slightly peppery and I prefer this wine to its elder brother, Rocca Rubia, which costs twice the price. It's not at all acidic and has plenty of tannin to work with too. In Sardinia it retails at around 6 euros or about 12 to 15 in a restaurant.
