More information

The grapes for the powerful Rocca Rubia Riserva Carignano del Sulcis DOC from Cantina di Santadi come from the vineyards near the Mediterranean coast of the Sulcis region in southwestern Sardinia. This top wine impresses in the glass with its intense, almost opaque ruby red colour. In the nose, the Rocca Rubia unfolds intense scents of local myrtle, blueberry, blackberry, leather, vanilla and liquorice


The full-bodied Rocca Rubia by Santadi is velvety and full-bodied on the palate with long-lasting  aromas and a large structure.

Cultivation and vinification  of the Rocca Rubia Riserva Carignano del Sulcis DOC of  Cantina di Santadi

This wine is made from 100% Carignano. The vines are raised in the Sulcis region in south-western Sardinia as trees in the ancient style of the Latin vine. Grapes for this powerful, tannin-rich wine thrive on the sandy, loamy marbled barren soils. After harvesting and separating from the stalks, the grapes remain in steel tanks for about 14 days at a controlled temperature. Meanwhile, the mash is repeatedly lowered so that the noble tannins, which are particularly rich in the carignano grown in trees, pass into the must. After fermentation, the Rocca Rubia is transferred to new and two-year French barrels, in which it is aged for 10 to 12 months. A few months on the bottle support the wine to develop its rich bouquet.

Food recommendation for the Rocca Rubia of Santadi

Serve this brilliant red wine from Sardinia with red meat, wild boar, suckling pig and well matured Sardinian sheep's cheese.
