James SucklingAromas of rosemary, lavender, blackberries and black licorice follow through to a full body that shows licorice, walnut shell, tar and dark fruit. Fascinating wine with real personality. Always refined. Drink now.
Wine SpectatorAn elegant, medium- to full-bodied red, this is long and supple, with fine-grained tannins married to a pleasing range of crème de cassis, fig cake and aromatic hints of espresso, wild sage, iron and smoke. Lingering, lightly spiced finish. Carignano with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2029. 8,333 cases made.
DecanterA joint venture between Santadi and Tuscany’s Tenuta San Guido, Punica crafts polished Carignano with help from 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. Mint, black liquorice, layered tannins and plush fruit.
