About the Vineyard
Carginano Del Sulcis was introduced as a DOC in 1977 and the wine can only be a red or rose made from the Carignano (Carignan) grape. Sulcis is a coastal zone that includes the island of Sant'Antioco as well as the areas around Sant'Antioco. This region is in the south of Sardinia, close to the sea, which provides cooling breezes for Sardinia's southernmost vines. The soils in Argiolas' vineyards are soil, sand, and clay. They are only 500 meters from the sea, making this a particularly windy location, which helps mature the grapes. Argiolas uses no irrigation for this vineyard. The water content is comprised of sea salt and humidity.
Harvesting is performed when the grapes are ripe, providing freshness and softness typical of a young Carginano. The freshness gives way to balanced tannins.
The wine is brilliant ruby red with an intense perfume with notes of wild “macchia Mediterranea” and fresh red fruit. On the palate, the wine is fresh and savory with fine and balanced tannins.
