Winemaker Notes

This Nuragus expresses Sardinia’s two faces: land and sea. Bouquet features autumn fruits of apple and pear, with a dash of salty sea air. A fresh, balanced wine distinguished by characteristic flavor. Goes well with raw seafood, especially oysters.

James Suckling
Aromas of mangoes, sliced apples and pears on the nose and palate. Medium body, fresh acidity and a creamy texture. Medium finish.

Antonella Corda, Italy
The story of Antonella Corda winery is deeply connected to that of its eponymous founder. She grew up among the vineyards in a family of winegrowers that stretches back over generations. Antonella became an agronomist, graduating in Agricultural Sciences and Technology at the University of Sassari and founded her own winery in 2010 with vineyards she inherited from her grandfather, Antonio Argiolas. She took the reins in hand, creating an ambitious and innovative project that honors its past. Antonella’s mother, Maria, has also been an inspiration for the level of wine produced, instilling in her daughter the belief that the quality of the wine begins in the territory’s soil. This is a boutique winery capable of producing excellent Sardinian wines worthy of representing Sardinia around the world. A 40-hectare farm with 15 hectares of vineyard, 12 of olive trees, and the rest left open for crop rotation. Antonella Corda believes sustainable cultivation to be the best way for people to coexist with nature, so it can be passed down to the next generation intact. All of this means that organic fertilizers, integrated pest control actions, and sustainable irrigation systems are utilized in the vineyards.

Hailed for centuries as a Mediterranean vine-growing paradise, multiple cultures over many centuries have ruled the large island of Sardinia. Set in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Phonoecians, Ancient Rome, and subsequently the Byzantines, Arabs and Catalans have all staked a claim on the island at some point in history. Along the way, these inhabitants transported many of their homeland’s prized vines and today Sardinia’s modern-day indigenous grape varieties claim multiple origins. Sardinia’s most important red grapes—namely Cannonau (a synonym for Grenache) and Carignan—are actually of Spanish origin.

Vermentino, a prolific Mediterranean variety, is the island’s star white. Vermentino has a stronghold the Languedoc region of France as well as Italy’s western and coastal regions, namely Liguria (where it is called Pigato), Piedmont (where it is called Favorita) and in Tuscany, where it goes by the name, Vermentino. The best Vermentino, in arguably all of the Mediterranean, grows in Sardinia's northeastern region of Gallura where its vines struggle to dig roots deep down into north-facing slopes of granitic soils. These Vermentino vines produce highly aromatic, full and concentrated whites of unparalleled balance.

Today aside from its dedication to viticulture, Sardinia remains committed to maintaining its natural farmlands, bucolic plains of grazing sheep and perhaps most of all, its sandy, sunny, Mediterranean beaches.
