Tasting Notes: An elegant yet austere wine, like the land it comes from. Deep ruby red color with powerful aromas of mature red fruit and spices. Full-bodied and concentrated, this Carignano is made from ancient vines with very low yield which shows in the level of complexity of this wine. Undoubtedly well suited for long term aging.

Winemaker Notes: Carignano is an ancient grape that has been native to this area for over 2,000 years. It is found in other areas of Italy and in France, but is a somewhat unsung hero- producing fantastic varietal wines for those who can tame the vigorous vine. Late budding and ripening, high yielding, and susceptible to powdery mildew and grapevine moths, Carignano seems tricky and unwieldy yet the vine flourishes in Sulcis’ particular climate. “We believe in Carignano!” he exclaims, “Unadulterated, and in its full varietal expression.”

Food Pairing: Pairs well with red meat, roasts, sausages, cured meats, seasoned cheeses and blue cheeses.
