Cantina Gallura Canayli Vermentino di Gallura Superiore 2022
Though it is found throughout Sardinia, Vermentino from Gallura has a unique quality due to the microclimatic conditions and the character of the terrain, which features a thin, poor substratum of granitic material rich in skeleton.
This terroir along with hand selection of very ripe grapes give this Superiore its unique and full aromas.
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.
Production area: Valley of San Leonardo in the countryside of Luras, Calangianus, yield 60-70 quintals per hectare.
Granite soils of limited depth, rich in fossils consisting of coarse granite weathering sand, loose, acid, poor in nutrients, very low water retention.
