Roussou (“Red”) was the first wine made by Tanca Gioia: it comes from the vinification of pure Carignano del Sulcis, a symbol of the island of St. Peter and of the whole Sulcis-Iglesias region.
We select grapes from the most suited areas of the vineyard for Carignano, therefore the annual production is limited.
This grape, although a red berry, if worked with respect leads to an elegant wine, balanced and non-invasive. Traditionally accompanies all dishes made with tuna as Spaghetti alla Carlofortina, Stewed or Roasted tuna.
With a glass of Roussou you can relive the same feeling when you reach Sardinia by ferry or plane: being overwhelmed by the scent of Mediterranean bush and trails calcined by the sun.
