    Carignano, the famous red grape from the Mediterranean basin that has long been at home in Sardinia’s unique environment – these grapes are grown in the coastal area between Capo Teulada and the Iglesiente mountains. In the glass it has a deep ruby red colour with brief violet highlights, offering a nose of residual vinous sensations, accompanied by great fruit that emerges from a slight underlying note of good oak. The warm, full palate combines velvety, caressing tannins with ripe late-autumn fruit, held together by the subtle presence of fine oak. It pairs well with red and white meats, game and veined cheeses.

    Sella & Mosca is an outburst of nature. Its home is in Alghero, an enchanted corner of Sardinia, where it was founded by two adventurous men from Piedmont: Sella, an engineer and the grandson of the prominent statesman Quintino Sella, and Mosca, an attorney.

    Naturally, large-scale adaptation was required to transform what had been vast and uncultivated tracts of land into a winemaking concern: thousands of boulders of all sizes were removed and the wild scrub forest tamed to make room for the vineyards. Finally, a state-of-the-art wine cellar was built. A huge job, when all is said and done, which is reminded by several sandstone outcroppings that mark the distinctive landscape.

    Even today, the winery is characterized by this spirit of innovation, driven to express the characteristics of the Sardinian terroir in the best way possible, just as it was conceived by its founders. Sella & Mosca is a kaleidoscope of aromas, colors and flavors, seesawing between past and future.

    Sun-kissed and windswept, Sardinia has always been a wine-producing region. Sella & Mosca is the ultimate expression of this sun-drenched land, strong and well-suited to forging wines with a personality, but mindful of the past.

    Sella & Mosca has chosen some of the most coveted areas for grape-growing. I Piani, north of Alghero, is the largest single estate. It covers 650 hectares in a sunny plain caressed by the mistral wind, with an incredible botanical garden surrounded by over 520 hectares of vineyards.

    A place that cannot be confused with any other, home to oleanders, mediterranean pines, palms and eucalyptus. The estate is joined by smaller lots in Gallura, in the northeast part of the island (15 ha) and Giba, in Sulcis, on the southwest coast between Capo Teulada and the Iglesiente range (6 ha).

    Each location has a terroir characterized by unique environmental conditions: soil with a high mineral content and little rainfall, with clean air and a hot, windy climate. Although geologically similar, each estate contains a wide variety of soils: clay, sand, calcareous, volcanic. In each micro-area, the varietals respond differently, providing an exceptionally wide variety of characteristics to choose from.
