Winery: Cantine Sardus Pater is located on the island of Sant ‘Antioco, off the southwestern coast of Sardinia. It was founded in 1949 and began producing wines in 1955. Today the cooperative has 200 members and 300 hectares of vineyards, the majority of which contain vines over 50 years in age. Although other grapes are grown, such as Vermentino and Monica, Carignano is the main focus of the winery.
Winemaking: Although not currently certified, organic methods are used in both the vineyard and winery, with an emphasis placed on as little intervention as possible.
Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour with aromas of dusty earth, carnation, cherry and a flash of funk. Rustic and pepper spice driven, with cherry, plum and savoury hints enveloped in spice. Mild acidity and smooth tannins harmonize with black cherry and crushed pink peppercorn on the pleasantly dry finish. Straightforward and fantastic with everyday dishes like pasta, pizza and anything with barbeque sauce.
