Winemaker Notes

Looking for an unusual, mouthwatering white for summer? Look no farther! Frankly, this will be one of the most delicious, off the beaten path whites you could try this year for under $20. Light golden color, this fresh, delicate white from the indigenous Vermentino grape is characterized by wonderful aromas and a certain roundness on the palate. No wonder Italian whites are gaining in popularity!

"This is a near-perfect rendition of Vermentino; it's powerful but restrained, with warm aromas that conjure memories of baked apple and spice. The palate is sly and dry, with cinnamon notes supporting lemon and pineapple. A rich, creamy finish cements this wine's reputation as a leader in its class."

Cantina Santadi, Italy
Image of winery
Founded in 1960 in Sardinia and counting 988 acres of prime, gently rolling soil reaching out to the sea, Cantina Santadi is run under the strictest, most quality-based criteria.

The arenaceous terrain of Sulcis’ coastline is unique in that pre-phylloxera rootstock survives and thrives: the finely textured, wind-swept sand naturally prevents phylloxera from depositing its eggs!

Add to this one of Italy's legendary and brilliant oenologists, Piero Cella... and what you have can only be a range of true Sardinian gems.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular, complex and age-worthy wines. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
