An ancient vine of the Sardinian tradition, perhaps brought by the Phoenicians, the Carignano shows one of the many Mediterranean souls of the island. Typical of the southern areas of Sulcis, it comes from the coastal estate between Capo Teulada and the Iglesiente mountain range.

- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
