CARIGNANO DEL SULCIS RISERVA 'IS ARENAS' MAGNUM SARDUS PATER 2019 DESCRIPTION

The historic cooperative winery Sardus Pater presents Carignano del Sulcis Riserva 'Is Arenas,' a red wine with a warm and enveloping taste capable of transporting the senses to the beautiful Sardinian island. This winery bases its production on Carignano, a grape variety that has been cultivated since ancient times in Sulcis, a territory located in the southwestern tip of Sardinia. On the island of Sant'Antioco, where the estate is based, Carignano is bush-trained and today the more than 200 contributing members continue the work of enhancing this black grape variety. The Sardinian expression "is arenas" means "the sands," a name chosen to highlight the nature of the soils from which the grapes come.

Sardus Pater Carignano del Sulcis Riserva 'Is Arenas' is a 100 percent Carignano from vines grown on the island of Sant'Antioco using the bush-trained system. The vines have an average age of 80 years and are rooted on predominantly sandy soils. After the harvest, which usually takes place at the end of September, the grapes are brought to the winery for vinification in stainless steel tanks, containers in which alcoholic fermentation and maceration on the skins of about 15 days takes place. Next, the mass is racked into Allier oak barrels where malolactic fermentation and 10-month aging takes place, followed by an additional 6 months of bottle aging.

'Is Arenas' Carignano del Sulcis Riserva Sardus Pater has a brilliant ruby red color. Clear hints of red fruits, licorice and Mediterranean scrub emerge from the glass, with herbaceous notes and black pepper in the background. Soft, warm and enveloping the palate, endowed with a silky texture and pronounced tannins that drive the fruity and spicy finish.
