Mesa Buio Carignano del Sulcis DOC

Mesa Buio Carignano del Sulcis D.O.C.



Buio” means “dark,” an apt description for this brooding and sultry Carignan. Grown in sandy soils on original rootstock in the southern tip of Sardinia, those low-yielding vines produce fruit of intense concentration. Blackberry, plum, and dark fruits meet notes of cinnamon and pepper. Rich with tannins and full-bodied, its texture seizes attention—and imagination. Herb-crusted lamb chops or a roasted eggplant and tomato dish capture the spirit of this bold and spicy red.
