Red Wine “DOC Carignano del Sulcis”

Territory of Sulcis(CA) – Sardinia

 

The Carignano is a red grape variety that you can find in all wine-growing areas of the western Mediterranean, and in Sardinia its production is almost entirely concentrated in Sulcis territory between the last mountain reliefs of the south-west of Sardinia and the sea. It may have been introduced by the Phoenicians, the founders of Sulci in the island of S. Antioco, but it could also have come later, in the Aragonese period.

This grape variety has good resistance to salt winds and cryptogams and it is perhaps for this reason that it is grown on sandy and sunny soils of Sulcis; has no particular soil and climate requirements. The low yield per vine and the particular land of cultivation, give the wine a distinctive intense ruby ​​red color, a rich scent reminiscent of plums and cherries, chocolate, licorice and black pepper. On the palate is balanced and aristocratic. Since 1977 it is recognized as a DOC wine and it is marketed under the name of Carignano del Sulcis. Despite its limited distribution, the Carignano can be considered one of the most important and prestigious wines in the wine scene of Sardinia.
