      Intense Carignano from master hand for a small price. Deep ruby red in the glass, the nose is surrounded by small black-red fruits with a wild, pristine expression that we find only in the rough, untouched landscape of Sardinia. Beautiful spice with a soft, but nevertheless clearly recognizable interpretation of Sardinian red wines, as we love them. Wonderful drinking flow. SUPERIORE.DE

      Deep, multi-layered and alive. In the nose a fascinating blend of sweet berries and dark cherries. The clear and fresh taste flows with fine fruit and good length. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Ampeleia's 2016 Carignano is bold, flavorful and quite juicy, with tons of varietal charactater and nuance. Expressive floral and savory notes give the red berry fruit quite a bit of aromatic lift. In 2016, the Carignano is both unique and compelling." Antonio Galloni

      "A beam of pure cherry and raspberry is backed by lively acidity and dusty tannins here. Though this tightens up for now, the finish is saturated with fruit." Wine Spectator

      "Carignan works in Tuscany. Plenty of dried apricot and dark berry character here with a green tea undertone. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Made from biodynamic grapes." James Suckling

      Terre Brune is a 100% Carignano of seductive balance and fruitiness and every year one of the best Red Sardinia. Aged in barrique, it shows a fresh but ripe fruit on the nose with a slight hint of cocoa. On the palate of beautiful depth, with present tannins. An exemplary wine vinified with love and full of regional typicity. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright medium red. Fresh cocoa, sweet spices and red fruit on the knockout nose. Then intensely flavored but not weighty with classic energy and notes of flowers and tar complicating ripe red fruit and chocolaty flavors. Dense and juicy with sophisticated tannins on the long suave finish. Great stuff in a riper, suaver style than the Rocca Rubia, though both are excellent wines and each will have its fans." Vinous

      "An ode to Sulcis’ ungrafted old Carignano vines. Scents of anis, bay leaf and dried broom reveal slowly, then crushed stone and concentrated black plum appear on the palate. Still firm and tight." Decanter

    Things to know about
    Carignano
     

    Carignano is a worldwide grape variety that is known by various synonyms. It is shrouded in legend in Sardinia, where it is said that it was brought to Sardinia by the Phoenicians in the 9th century BC. There's no proof of that, though. The variety probably comes from Spain, where it is known as Mazuela or Cariñena and has contributed significantly to the success of Priorat wines.

    Cariñena – mazuela – Carignano.

    In Italy it is mainly located in the southwest of Sardinia, around Carbonia and the island of Sant'Antioco. This DOC for red wine and rosato is called Carignano del Sulcis, after the nearby famous archaeological Parco del Sulcis. The legendary oenologist Giacomo Tachis, who has made the variety known, is the "Terre Brune" Carignano del Sulcis Superiore DOC from 100% Carignano made one of the best and most sought after red wines of Sardinia. Also the collaboration of Sassicaia & Santadi under the label Punica brought with the "Barrua" a Carignano dominated Isole dei Nuraghi IGT, which has won almost all Italian and international top awards in recent years.

    In the rest of Sardinia, Carignano is often found as a cuvée partner, for example in Mandrolisai, where he is married to Bovale Sarde and Monica Nera, or Campidano di Terralba, in some Cannonau di Sardegna and in the coveted Isola dei Nuraghi. Carignano is rarely found on the Italian mainland, for example in Lazio, where it is occasionally cultivated in the Cerveteri. SUPERIORE.DE
