2018 Vermentino di Sardegna “Stria”

Vigne Rada

The combination of Catalan heritage with Italy’s rich culture of gastronomy has created a culinary paradise in Alghero, a charming old village on Sardinia’s northwest coast. In addition to simple grilled branzino and sublime pastas with bottarga or fresh mussels, trattorias here feature endemic Algherese dishes, including a local version of paella as well as lobster, a specialty of this stretch of coastline so prized that the current queen of England chose to serve it at her wedding.
     Alghero is also the epicenter of a wine region characterized by abundant Mediterranean sunshine, salty coastal breezes, and rocky soils of quartz and limestone. With a luscious fragrance of herbs and flowers, the crisp, lemony Vermentino from Vigne Rada is a wonderful introduction to Alghero’s bounty.

About Sardinia

map of Sardinia

Our first foray into Sardegna is very recent, and it only took one trip to fall in love with the island, its culture, and its wines. Similar to its northerly neighbor, Corsica, there is a strong regional identity here that goes far beyond its official status as one of Italy’s twenty regions. Its people are proud, strong-willed, and deeply attached to their traditions—a distinctive character often seen with island people and accentuated by its long history of invasions and outside rule.

This tumultuous past has resulted in diverse influences—Greek, Roman, Aragonese, Catalan, and Ligurian, just to name a few—that have shaped the island’s culture, language, cuisine, and wines over many centuries. While Vermentino and Cannonau (aka Grenache) reign, Sardegna also boasts a number of indigenous grapes that are capable of expressing something unique in its abundant variety of terroirs.

The Mediterranean plays a major role, providing cooling, salty breezes to coastal areas, while the rugged, mountainous interior is home to high-altitude sites where wines retain freshness in spite of the southerly latitude. The granitic highlands of Gallura and Barbagia come to mind as some of its most qualitative zones, but a range of soils, elevations, and varying distance to the sea mean that the island is capable of producing wines in all styles, from crisp whites to powerful reds and exquisite vini dolci.

The three growers we represent bring something new to the table, something fascinating that is not found elsewhere in Italy or even in nearby Corsica. Their wines evoke the rustic beauty of this fascinating island civilization, and of course, pair perfectly with the local cuisine, be it seafood-based or the hearty, earthy specialties of its interior.
