Rosé wines : Carignano del Sulcis DOC

It is difficult to determine the most probable provenance of the variety today known as Carignano del Sulcis. According to the most creditable thesis, the variety originated in the west, probably in Aragon in Spain, and spread, acquiring various other names in the process, to the south of France and on as far as Algeria and Tunisia. On Sardinia, its cultivation is concentrated in the southwestern part of the island because of its good resistance to the salt-laden winds blowing in from the sea.

Because of the vine’s considerable vigor and the high alcohol level of the wines it yields, Carignano’s initial success was due to its suitability as a blending wine. However, the vineyards have been transformed in the last 30 years and the variety now produces an extremely pleasant wine that can be consumed with meals. And the wine now commands a good market.
