Cantina Gallura

In Tempio Pausania, at the foot of the Limbara, the winery has collected in itself the centuries-old tradition of the winemakers of the upper Gallura, already known in the nineteenth century even beyond the island's borders for the production of a Moscato of excellence. The rigorous selection systems, the modern processes of vinification and aging in cask or barrique, give life to wines of high quality with organoleptic characteristics in tune with the evolution of taste and the needs of consumers. The spearhead of the winery is "Vermentino di Gallura", the only wine in Sardinia to be awarded, since 1996, the coveted Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin. The five types produced Canayli and Genesi (in the Superior type), Piras, Gemellae and Mavriana, all of excellent level, are the result of the most advanced technologies: wines that have obtained numerous awards and recognitions at national and international level. (See section Acknowledgments) Alongside the native cultivars, Vermentino, Cannonau, Moscato, Pascale, Caricagiola, the members of the "Gallura" winery cultivate "Nebbiolo", a vine imported from Piedmont in 1700. From the vinification of these grapes are obtained three quality wines, Karana, Dolmen and the new Luna Nova which quickly gained the attention of the public and critics.
