Description

2013 Santadi Shardana
“The 2013 Shardana offers a deeply seductive display of wild berries, incense, dusty florals and exotic spices. The textures are silky-smooth, balanced by cool-toned red and black fruits that give way to a more tactile feel as saline-minerals and hints of tannin mount toward the close. Inner violet notes and tart woodland berries linger long through the youthfully structured finale. This blend of old-vine, partly pre-phylloxera Carignano plus a dollop of Syrah is firing on all cylinders. Drink through 2027” Eric Guido
