Barbera Sarda

The red grape variety comes from the island Sardinia ( Italy ). It may, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological or name similarities not with the varieties Barbera. Barbera del Sannio or Carignan ( mazuelo ) be confused. The parentage is unknown; possibly there is a relationship to the variety Barbera. The late-ripening vine produces red wines with acidity, which serve primarily as an acid-enhancing blend. It is grown exclusively in Sardinia, mainly in the provinces of Cagliari, Nuoro, Oristano and Sassari. In 2010, 84 hectares of vineyards were reported.
