Sardinia, sardinia Italy

This is one of the most exciting wineries to come out of Sardinia in two decades. It is the brainchild of 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 was the creation of a winery in Sulcis, in south-western Sardinia. As might be expected from someone with Sanna's background, the labels are striking.

Sanna has also ensured that the contents of the bottles are equally striking. Stefano Cova, a young winemaker from Trentino, took over with the 2008 vintage, improving on an already high level of quality. His 'Giunco' Vermentino is minerally, fresh and intense. Fermented at low temperatures to preserve the flavours derived in the vineyard, it is one of Sardinia's most exciting white wines. The reds are made primarily from Carignano for the 'Buio' and 'Buio Buio', and Cannonau for the 'Primo Scuro'. Like the whites, they have lovely ripeness allied to a delightful freshness and aromatic lift.
