In Italy, the cuisine is really one of its greatest assets. And if it’s on an island, even better. This is the case of Sardinia, which offers really tasty food and, of course, wines.
The introduction of wine in Sardinia goes back many centuries ago and that is why it currently provides a wide range of wines, from reds to sparkling passing by whites. We must talk about the DO Alghero, that offers powerful wines, many of them enshrined in the Sella & Mosca winery, one of the most popular features transparent white, fine and pure Torbato grapes, ideal pink for summer as well as red with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and vernaccia di Oristano. As we see, a variety we can admire.
Among the best-known wines, we want to speak about the cannonau, which is produced in the eastern part of the island. He has DO and fills the mouth with a dry and powerful flavor, a ?must try? if we are on the island.
In the South, we recommend the Medio Campidano wines, with the Nuragus native varieties, and the Sardinian Monica.
Strangely, we can also find the Malvasia, a unique wine that we see in different Spanish regions. It also has the OD and is naturally sweet and dry. As elsewhere, are also perfect for desserts at the end of a great meal.
Next to Cannonau, Carignano is another of the popular wines of Sardinia. Basically made ??in the Sulcis area, it is known for its strong ruby color, very warm and full-bodied, usually taken with pastas, meats and sausages.
Other proposals of high quality wines on the island are the Mandrolisai, Moscato di Sorso and Sennori, or Vernaccia di Oristano, which also include designation of origin, and represent some of the most popular wines in Sardinia.
