The small Sardinian IGP appellation of Barbagia is rarely used. It covers the mountainous area in the centre of the island. Sedilesu winery has 15 hectares of vineyard here, primarily planted with bush vine Cannonau. The rare white variety of Granazza can also be found.
Carignano del Sulcis DOC is one of Sardinia’s key red wine appellations. Made primarily from Carignano the area is capable of giving rich, full bodied wines with impressively complex aroma profiles. Quiet investment from Italian entrepreneurs and the increased confidence of local growers to bottles their own wine has lead to an exciting appellation with modest prices.
