The 2006 is a muscular Shardana in which the 15% Syrah seems to speak loudly. I especially like the way the finish builds towards an intense crescendo here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026. -AG

This gorgeous Carignano-based wine from the sun-drenched island of Sardinia shows amazing harmony and personality. There are rich and ripe notes here of blackberry mature cherry tobacco leather and a touch of exotic spice. It's rich smooth and velvety on the close. Very nice. M.L.

The creamy seamless raspberry and red cherry flavors are complicated by tobacco and candied flowers. Turns more tannic with air finishing with a gentle licorice quality and a touch of alcoholic warmth. Still it's a very successful wine. -Ian D'Agata

Ripe red fruit with stony mineral notes emerge on the nose. Black fruit liqueur dominates the attack on the palate while an intensely muscular and gripping mineral structure anchors the wine backed by focused tannins that point to long ageability. It needs time but so well-balanced in its brawniness that it's worth opening now to serve with robust meat.
