SARDINIA

SARDINIA Sardinia, 150 miles off the west coast of mainland Italy, is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Vines in the wine region of Sardinia further benefit both from the soils, which consist of granite, limestone, sandstone, and mineral-rich clay soils which offer diversity in the expression of Sardinian wines and from the Mediterranean climate in Sardinia that leads to hot, dry summer and rainy, wet winters. The portfolio of varieties planted in Sardinian vineyards bears little resemblance to those in any other Italian wine region. Cannonau, Vermentino, and Carignano are the most well-known grape varieties from the Sardinian wine region, which best represent the region’s winemaking potential.
