Sardinia

The separation between Sardinia and mainland Italy is reflected in the island's relationship with wine as much as in other ways; wine is not a historic part of the culture as it has been in Italy, which the ancient Greeks named Enotria 'The Land of Wine'. To the wine-trained eye, the cultural gap is demonstrated clearly in the grape varieties used most commonly in Sardinia's wines. The portfolio of varieties planted in vineyards and used in wines in Sardinia bears little resemblance to that found in any other Italian wine region. Varieties with more French and Spanish origins have been planted, such as Cannonau (Grenache), Carignan (Carignano), Cabernet Sauvignon and Bobal are some of the most commonly seen. Malvasia and Vermentino are certainly also present. Muscat (in the form of Moscato Bianco), is also grown on in Sardinia's vineyards. It even has its own Moscato di Cagliari and Moscato di Sorso-Sennori DOCs, as well as a generic Moscato di Sardegna title which covers the whole island.
