Dec 2017 - The 2014 Carignano del Sulcis Riserva Rocca Rubia opens to a dark garnet color and a firm, mid-weight style. The bouquet allows for neat and linear fruit tones with dried cherry and black currant. You also get a good dose of balsam or medicinal herb and cola. This wine is broad and long in terms of mouthfeel, and its structure has been enhanced by 12 months of aging in neutral oak barrels. The mouthfeel evenly blankets the entire palate.
