    The Story: Owned and operated by Angela and Renato Spanu, who says
    “the Jankara vineyards are located in the highlands of Gallura, in the
    heart of a prestigious sub-zone called Vena di San Leonardo, which runs
    from Lake Liscia to the territory around the minuscule, medieval country
    church of San Leonardo. The Vermentino vines are planted on a cru
    called Giannaghe, which is Jannaca in the local dialect and it faces
    another historic cru called Karana. And that, in fact, is how the name
    Jankara came about: JANnaca-KARAna. The microclimate is outstanding,
    influenced by the vast lake and the island’s second highest mountain,
    Limbara. Jankara is right in the middle and enjoys hot days and cool
    nights throughout the most important months of the growing season.
    Pair that with the never-ending winds that constantly ‘clean’ the air, keep
    temperatures down and maintain the vineyard free of pests and disease,
    and you have the perfect conditions to grow quality grapes!”
