Win A Trip For Two
#1 Best Buy of 2015 - 92 Points - Wine Enthusiast - November 2015
This elegantly structured wine opens with aromas of black plum, mocha, Mediterranean herbs and a hint of scorched earth. The round, enveloping palate doles out ripe black cherry, blackberry, cinnamon and white pepper, while firm, silky tannins provide the framework. A fantastic wine.

Terre Rare
Carignano del Sulcis D.O.C. Riserva


Ruby red with a nose that suggests vanilla and well-articulated fruit. Harvested from old bush-trained vines in the harsh, dry conditions of the Sulcis district on the southwestern Sardinian coast. Aged for three years in oak barrels, with a palate that is fruit forward and lightly spicy, medium bodied with complexity on the finish.

Production Area
Three years in barriques (French) and several months in bottle prior to release.

Grape Varieties
100% Carignano

Vinification
The grapes are manually harvested in October and fermented in stainless steel vats for 10 to 15 days at 86°F. Soon after the end of this tumultuous fermentation, a slow completion period follows while Malolactic fermentation progresses. Aging: Three years in barriques (French) and several months in bottle prior to release.
