Wine region

The largest of the Italian islands is Sicily, the second largest Sardinia, and what they both have in common is that their glorious history goes back to the times of ancient myths and legends. but otherwise they differ in many ways. If in Sicily lives a people full of exuberant temperament, the Sardinians are considered the proudest and at the same time the most hard-working tribe of all Italy. Tourism has only recently arrived, but agriculture and animal husbandry remain the island's main sources of income. ''Porceddi'', suckling pigs roasted according to a millenary custom, ''Malhoreddus, Taccula, Corda, Cassola, Favata'', the unleavened bread of the shepherds, large and small mussels, fat eels and lobsters, tuna and fruits of all kinds form the backbone of Sardinian cuisine, a cuisine that draws from ancient traditions and knows how to prepare dishes for people with really good taste. And the wines, such as the famous Vernaccia, are strong or light, liqueur-like or fragrant, but all of them go well with these delicious, natural meals. In them, too, man has put the experience of centuries, and it is as if a piece of Sardinian courtesy and magnanimity had sublimated itself in them.

Without a doubt, the most famous and successful wines of the island of Sardinia are those made from the native grape varieties Cannonau di Sardegna and Vermentino di Sardegna. But also rather unknown, autochthonous grape varieties such as Carignano and Nieddera are making a name for themselves. - Gerardo [TS01/23]

"From an oenological point of view, Sardinia is a vine paradise for the most diverse varieties. In the north, Vermentino reigns supreme, a grape that yields such excellent results nowhere else on the island. The west coast, between Bosa and Oristano, is home to two such fazsinating ancient vines as Malvasia and Vernaccia. And just opposite, the Cannonau has found its ideal habitat between Jerzu and Dorgali. The south is still missing, where the best reds are bottled in Campidano and the noble Carignano grape is at home in Sulcis." - Slow Wine

"Let's just look at the northeast of the island, where the Vermentino immediately jumps into the eye, which has probably found its ideal habitat in Gallura. In any case, here it is at its best, yielding velvety Mediterranean aromas that enhance their sensual value with mineral stimulants and fragrant negligès of aromatic herbs and scrub, respectively." - Gambero Rosso
