Carignano, is known in its native Spain as Carignane, a grape which the winery identifies as being known for its elegant and velvety tannins. The 2015 vintage was reportedly a good season - there were only a few days of rain in late September which had no effect on the grapes.
This Sardinian wine is extremely dark and smells of tart, red fruit and a strong herbal accent. It really has a wonderful nose. The palate comes on a bit riper, but not much. The acidity is quite fresh and racy, while the tannins are firm enough, but do not get in the way. Pair this wine with salami.
