The Legend

War had been devastating the ancient Barbagia, in the centre of the island of Sardinia, for years. The Army of King of Iliensi was almost on its knees and incapable of defeating the Carthaginian invasion.

The lookouts on the Big Nuraghe saw the messenger of the invaders come to them asking for an audience with the King. They let him in.
“I have been sent by my Emperor to tell you that your Kingdom belongs to him now. If you do not wish to be completely erased, hand me your crown as a token of surrender and the blood of your first born, the most valorous among your Army.”

The King left the room to reflect upon it. He gathered his three wisemen and asked for advice. The older said: “Give him your crown and send him an amphora of our wine. Tell him it is “Sàmbene” (blood) of your first born and suggest that the Emperor takes one sip to absorb his strength.” The King accepted his advice.

The Emperor received the crown and did not hesitate to wear it. He got the amphora and opened it. He dipped a large cup in it and drank what he thought was the blood of the King’s first born. He was enraptured by it. It was not blood but the sweetness of that ambrosia got to his heart and mellowed it. He had never tasted anything so good and inebriating, sensual and beguiling.

He kept on drinking and that night, for the very first time, his dreams were peaceful and joyful. The following day, he had his horse saddled and beetok himself to the King, bringing an offer of peaceful cohabitation and the request of having revealed the secret of that nectar.

Since that day, in these lands, “Sàmbene” is symbol of change.
