This is one of the most exciting wineries to come out of Sardinia in two decades. Its was established by Gavino Sanna, a Sardinian who has lived in Milan for the past 50 years, where he built up one of Italy’s most successful advertising agencies. On a whim, he decided to sell the agency and seek new challenges. One of these challenges was the creation of a winery in Sulcis in southwestern Sardinia. The Giunco Vermentino is matured for 4 months in a stainless steel and 10 month in bottle before release.
The complex bouquet releases subtle notes of lime blossom, yellow peach and apricot, and zesty grapefruit. The palate is crisp and delicious, perfectly echoing the aromatics on the nose, with tangy fruit and a long-lasting, mineral finish.
