Carignan

Carignan (also known as Carignan Noir, Bois Dur, Catalan, Roussillonen, Monestel and Plant de Lédenon Carignan Noir, Bois Dur, Catalan, Roussillonen, Monestel and Plant de Lédenon) is a red wine grape variety that may have originated in Carinena but was later transplanted to Sardinia. The popularity of Carignan is largely tied to its ability to produce very large yields. Carignan is a late budding and ripening grape which requires a warm climate in order to achieve full ripeness. Being naturally high in acidity, tannins and astringency, this variety is difficult for winemakers to work with and requires a lot of skill.
