Vermentino di Gallura Superiore JANKARA DOCG 2015From: $28.90
Classification: Vermentino di Gallura Superiore DOCG

The bouquet is explosive with hints of white almond flowers and mandarin peel, the palate is rich and intense with great minerality and balanced acidity. The finish is warm and lengthy with a slight almond retro-taste typical to the Vermentino grape.
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!”
