Cantina di Santadi Shardana Valli di Porto Pino IGT Italy Sardinia Valli di Porto Pino Red 2006
Dark ruby. Perfumed aromas of red and dark berries, with a strong salty overtone. The creamy, seamless raspberry and red cherry flavors are complicated by tobacco and candied flowers. Turns more tannic with air, finishing with a gentle licorice quality and a touch of alcoholic warmth. Still, it's a very successful wine.Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar90 points

The 2006 Shardana wraps around the palate with imposing layers of black olives, spices, grilled herbs and licorice. The 2006 is a muscular Shardana in which the 15% Syrah seems to speak loudly. I especially like the way the finish builds towards an i... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Carignan wine from Sardinia in Italy. 2006 Santadi, Cantina Shardana 750ml
Red and brickish in color. Ripe red fruit with stony mineral notes emerge on the nose. Black fruit liqueur dominates the attack on the palate while an intensely muscular and gripping mineral structure anchors the wine backed by focused tannins that point to long ageability. It needs time but so well-balanced in its brawniness that it s worth opening now to serve with robust meat. Devon Magee.
