Cantina Gallura Canayli Vermentino di Gallura 2021
The Vermentino varietal is clearly Spanish in origin. It traveled from Spain to Corsica in the 14th century and from there went on to Liguria. Its appearance on Sardinia was fairly recent, the final decades of the last century, and it was first planted in the Gallura at the island’s northernmost tip. Although it is now found throughout Sardinia, Vermentino expresses itself best in the Gallura, an area incessantly swept by the salty Mediterranean air.
