Cantina Santadi Carignano del Sulcis Grotta Rossa wine is a splendid offering from the Sardinian region of Italy. This lush, ruby-red wine boasts a rich complexity of flavours, with notes of mature red fruits, Mediterranean herbs, and subtle hints of spice.

Its impressive aromatic intensity pairs wonderfully with red meat dishes, game, and matured cheeses. An exquisite example of Italian viticulture, the Grotta Rossa wine is an elegant experience, guaranteed to add an element of sophistication to any evening.
Mature, gamey nose, almost Pinot in style but the palate is fuller and serious. Delicate violet notes on the nose followed by attractive, violet fruit. Delicately made. Toffee smells on the nose and a pleasant palate with slightly ageing fruit and interesting flavour of mushroom on the finish. Complex, deep and delicious blend of tarry blackcurrant fruit with underlying richness of dried fig.
