carignano del sulcis
The Sulcis region of Sardinia is located in the southwest of the island where Carignao is the most popular grape variety. The area was one of the first to be settled by the Phoenicians who with them brought a grape growing form of agriculture.
Carignano’s cultivation is concentrated in the southwestern part of the island because of its good resistance to the salt-laden winds blowing in from the sea.
