The Carignano grape is an authochthonal variety of Sardinia with probable Spanish origin, arrived in Sardinia during the rule of the Aragons in the 14th century. In Spain it is called Carinena, in France (where it is present in the Midi and Langedoc-Rossillon), Carignan. The berry is black regular, ovoid with very waxy, medium thick, blue skin. The flesh is meaty and juicy, slightly pink. The Carignano has a compact, medium-large, with one or two wings bunch and the leaf is medium, pentagonal. The Carignano grape has good vigor and constant and abundant production. It is sensitive powdery mildew.

Colour: intense ruby red with garnet tinges coming with ageing.

Nose: intense and enveloping with sensors of wild berries.
