Carignan Wines

View all products in Carignan Wines »
Carignan, grown in Languedoc and in the south-east of France, is considered the largest grape crop worldwide. It is also known as Carignano in Italy, Carignane in the U.S. and Carigneña or Mazuela in Spain. It is also found in Argentina, Chile, China, United States (California), Mexico and South Africa. Some people believe that it actually originated in Cariñena, in Aragon. It is a recommended variety in Aragon, Catalonia, the Basque Country and La Rioja, and is authorized in Castilla-La Mancha, Extremadura and Navarra. The grapes are blue-black, round and relatively large, thick-skinned and astringent, with large and compact bunches. The wines it produces have good color, acidity and tannins, with a flavor and aroma reminiscent of red berries and rose and violet petals, without any distinctive flavors, except in the few cases where very selective vine management is carried out. Therefore, it is mostly a wine for everyday consumption or to blend with other wines, using both carbonic maceration and oak aging.
