Wine tasting notes

Intense aromas and excellent use of oak. Terrific structure and body with ripe, smooth, black fruit and spices on the palate. Immediately striking due to its richness and extract. Balance between the fruit and the wood is superb.

Food matching

Pairs beautifully with red meat, game and full flavoured cheese. Served between 18 and 20

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013) - 93 pts

Dec 2017 - The 2013 Carignano del Sulcis Superiore Terre Brune (95% Carignano and 5% Bovaleddu) is a distinctive and beautifully intense red wine. The aromas are bright and vertical in this balanced vintage, to the point of being penetrating and pungent (in a positive way). It offers compelling aromas of candied cherry, kirsch and dark plum. Spice, tar and leather are introduced with seamless integration. It sees 18 months of oak. The wine is firm and lasting in terms of mouthfeel, but its texture is never too thick or heavy. This is one one of the highest expressions of Sardinian vinous elegance. It should easily age over the next decade.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013) - 89+ pts

Inky ruby. Very flinty and herbal on the slightly fruit-challenged nose. Then rather sharp; subdued red cherry and smoky plum flavors and presently disjointed acidity need time to jell. I’m normally a huge fan of this wine, a modern interpretation of Carignano that is usually quite rich, luscious and chocolaty, even exotic, but that hardly seems to be the case in this vintage. Maybe I just caught it at an awkward time.

Tasted June 2010. Dry, meaty, black fruit, vanilla spice, cherry.(RH).


Wine Spectator (2013) - 91 pts

This harmonious, medium- to full-bodied red is aromatic, with hints of tea rose and spice box, while supple tannins are layered with flavors of baked raspberry, orange peel, dried marjoram and sweet smoke on the refined, creamy palate. Drink now through 2027


James Suckling (2013) - 94 pts

Aromas of strawberries, blackberry and dried mushroom. Some flower. Full body, round and juicy tannins. A velvety and polished red. Drink now.


Wine Enthusiast (2010) - 92 pts

Made with very old, ungrafted vines, this intense wine opens with aromas of toast, leather, espresso, ripe blackberry, spice and tobacco. The concentrated palate delivers ripe black cherry, dried plum, clove, leather and licorice alongside solid tannins and the warmth of alcohol. — K.O. (10/1/2015)
