Vermentino di Gallura Canayli 2021, Cantina di Gallura
- Unit Price
This wine was our first introduction to Vermentino, many years ago, and it is a classic representation of the varietal from a region famous for Vermentino. The Canayli bottling is unrelentingly juicy—ripe, yellow tropical and stone fruits leap from the glass, with a fine thread of salty minerality stitching everything together. This wine would be a superb pairing with any seafood, as well as some prosiciutto-wrapped melon, or even a New England clam chowder!
About the Winery
Cantina Gallura is located in the town of Tempio Pausania on the foothills of Mount Limbara. Here, beneath dazzling white granite mountains shaped by the North wind, grow blood-red cork oaks and the native vines of Sardegna. The cooperative was founded in 1956 and over 100 growers contribute their grapes. The soil, a mix of sand and rock, is poor, and the vines have to struggle to survive this hostile environment. The limited grape yield offer wines with unique and prized qualities.
Gallura is a name that echoes the term “Gallo” (Rooster) of the Pisan coat of arms of the Visconti family, the first lords of the Giudicato. Since 1956 the term “Gallo” embodies the esteemed wines of the Gallura wine producing cooperatives.
