Barbera Sarda

The red grape variety comes from the island of Sardinia(Italy). It must not be confused with Barbera, Barbera del Sannio or Carignan(Mazuelo), despite the fact that the names are apparently synonymous or morphologically or name-similar. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown; there may be a relationship with the Barbera variety. The late ripening vine produces acid-accentuated red wines, which are mainly used as acid-enhancing blends. It is grown exclusively in Sardinia, mainly in the provinces of Cagliari, Nuoro, Oristano and Sassari. In 2010, 84 hectares of vineyard area were designated.
