Characteristics and place of origin

Bovale is the name attributed to two different grape varieties, that is Bovale Sardo and Bovale from Spain, aka Bovale Grande. Both of them were imported from the Iberian peninsula around 1300.

 The wine obtained from Bovale is of a great structure, rich in polyphenols with soft tannins. 

Since 1976 the value of both grapes and the obtained wine have increased, thanks to the mark DOC Campidano di Terralba they awarded.

According to disciplinary regulations, grapes must be produced in the geographical area of the ensuring municipal districts: Arbus, Baressa, Collinas, Gonnosfanadiga, Gonnoscodina, Marrubiu, Masullas, Mogoro, Morgongiori, Pabillonis, Palmas Arborea, Pompu, Sardara, S. Gavino Monreale, S. Giusta, S. Nicolò d'Arcidano, Simala, Siris, Terralba, Uras, Villanovaforru, Guspini, Gonnostramatza.

Characteristic of this wine is a strong structure, a high alcohol content and a polyphenol complexity. They are easily recognizable when this wine is obtained by means of the traditional Sardinian head-training system and late harvestings.
