Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Sardinia: With a rugged, mountainous inland and gorgeous sandy beaches, safely secluded on the Mediterranean sea lies Sardinia. This beautiful island is known and loved for different reasons, including its position, culture, nature, and many more. For sommeliers, though closely intertwined with other mentioned aspects, viticulture stands out. Italy needs no introduction when it comes to its superior wines. However, the geographical distance between this island and Italian mainland illustrates well the difference in their winemaking. The typically Italian grape varieties that one thinks of first are very rarely found on this island, the most prominent types of which being Vermentino and Malvasia. Instead, Sardinia is known for growing some nearly exclusive vines like Nasco, Monica, Nuragus, Semidano, Torbatto and Niederra. Other more internationally recognized grapes grown here include Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Grenache. Most of the wine here is consumed locally, the still whites featuring herbaceous, tropical, flinty notes and the reds known for their gentle tannins and earthy overtones. Sardinia's international recognition is on the upswing, though, as this island shows some impressive potential for winemaking in the future. If you're looking to explore the most enigmatic parts of Italian winemaking, a bottle from Sardinia will deliver more than you could have possibly imagined.
