2010 Sella & Mosca 'Terre Rare' Carignano del Sulcis Riserva Sardinia$19.95
$17.96 btl/mixed case*
This wine comes from selected portions of the Sella & Mosca estate's bush trained Carignano vines, in the Sulcis district, in the hot, windswept corner of southwest Sardinia. Here, the Carignano (Carignane) grape faces extreme conditions: extremely hot weather in the summer, long periods of drought, and strong winds from the sea. These factors are often noxious to other grape varieties. The wild and rugged landscape of the Sulcis region, together with these extreme weather conditions, undoubtedly limit production capacity, rendering the grapes more concentrated and complex, resulting in higher quality "raw materials."
In the vineyards closer to the coast, the soils tend to be sandy, and this has proven to prevent the phylloxera louse from completing its life cycle. Therefore in these vineyards one can still find ungrafted old vines, just as it was at the end of the 19th century, before phylloxera almost destroyed European viticulture. In a sense, these vines are living antiques.
Carignano is known for its deep color and intense cherry and raspberry fruit, and this wine is no exception - pair it with roast pork with rosemary and juniper berries and be transported!
