Sardinia (Sardegna) is a vast island off the west coast of Italy in the Mediterranean. Its open position has made it prone to invasion and subsequent settlement by many cultures through the centuries, with multicultural influences on its grapes and vineyard practices as a result. The first known inhabitants were an ancient tribe called the Nuraghi, who lived there some time around 1500 BC and built conical stone structures throughout the island, some 700 of which still exist. The Nuraghi were known to trade with the Phoenicians, but this alignment brought about an invasion from the Carthaginians who were fighting with Greece at the time. The Romans were next, then the Spanish, Visigoths, Byzantines, back to Spain, Austrians, French (Savoy), then finally in the 1800s it came into Italian hands and stayed there. 
Despite its proximity to mainland Italy, perhaps due to settlement from so many outside cultures over the years, almost none of the more common Italian grapes such as Read more »

  • Poderi Parpinello Monica di Sardegna Superiore 2012


    Interesting Sardinian wine made from the Monica grape. A bit light on the nose but the palate is bright red and black cherry, a touch of cranberry, nice acidity, low to medium tannins and a medium finish. Read More

  • P&H are good, Mark, without a doubt, though we could get all geeky with ... That other iconoclast up in Sardinia could give Aetna fruit a run for their money, perhaps. But hell, it's all good! And interesting, not at all boring, and different, and good for them following their inner muse! I certainly appreciate their efforts. Read More

  • Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva Sardinia 2009


    Had this with lunch the other day at Tronino's @ Home. Not a bad bottle, spicy and unripe berry, but with rounded mouth. Took a long time to open up a bit. Might do well with a bit more age? Read More

  • Santadi Carignano del Sulcis Grotta Rossa 2007


    Un vino fruttato con un intenso finale di liquirizia. Una buona persistenza, pieno e dalla trama tanninica intrigante. Le sue uve crescono in una delle zone più belle della sardegna su terreni argillosi, sabbiosi, calcarei. Read More

  • Rei Cantina Sociale di Castiadas 2002


    Un vino le cui uve crescono sul livello del mare, nel sud est della sardegna, con i suoi 12 anni (2002-2014) di invecchiamento ha resistito benissimo al passare del tempo. Profumi delicati di macchia mediterranea, al gusto sentori di liquirizia, prugna, melagrana. Media persistenza, retrogusto di mirto e lentisco. Colore, leggermente aranciato t... Read More

  • Poderi Parpinello Alghero Ala Blanca 2013


    Really nice Italian vermentino. Very well balanced, initial impression of apricot and then subtle lemon cream. Good acidity, nice mouth feel and a decent finish. Very enjoyable and a good diversion from the usual lot of white wine. Read More
