SANTADI: The Cantina di Santadi Winery is located in the Sulcis area, in the southwest of Sardinia, just a few miles from the dazzling beaches and white sand dunes of Porto Pino. The grapes produce wines based on the carignano cultivar, with rich, expansive aroma and taste, noble tannins and a perfect balance between acid-organic elements, alcohol and polyphenols. Wise use of French barriques gives a perfect, harmonious finishing touch to the development of these superb wines.
The great reds: Terre Brune, Rocca Rubia, Noras, Araja, Grotta Rossa and Antigua, are accompanied by stylish whites: Villa di Chiesa, Cala Silente, Pedraia, Villa Solais, Latinia, all offsprings of an ancient winemaking tradition coupled with the use of state-of-the-art technology in the sectors of vinification, stabilization and bottling.
“Earthy, mineral, citrus and candied lemon aromas on the nose, combining on the palate with vibrant peach and pear fruit. Lean style with excellent fine line, finishing on sweet pear. “
Villa Solais matches very well with seafood first courses or white meat, but suits also great as aperitif, especially pleasant when served very cool.
“Complex nose with orange, nuts, spices, honey, caramel and candied orange zest developing into Crème Brule. Balanced, richly sweet, warm and long. Overall very satisfying.”
Latinia matches very well with Ricotta cheese Ravioli, well matured cheeses and also perfectly fits to any type of dessert.
“Lemon sherbet, grapefruit, pear and herbs on the nose. Good intensity, firm textured palate, weight and balance with mineral and saline flavours.”
Cala Silente matches well with fish and white meat dishes, with fine aromatic spices and sauces.
