This bottling of Birichino Scylla actually lists the varieties contained therein. The Carignane comes from the a vineyard planted in the 1920s in the Mokelumne River section of Lodi, though the family have been farming this land since 1853. The irony of naming this very civilized wine for a sea monster has not faded.Though ‘tis true that the very sight of young vine, hot climate, over cropped Carignane and Grenache can be enough to require even the most grizzled mariner to change his or her undercrackers, here the deep-rooted, moderate-yielding old ‘uns allow smooth sailing without stalling in the horsey latitudes.
