From Mancini Family wine tradition, begun in the 19th century, and the farsightedness and perseverance of Giovanni Mancini, the youngest of its descendants, it stems the winery Cantina Pedres. It is located in Gallura, one of the finest wine area in Italy and, consequently, in the world. Soil characteristics and a temperate climate are particularly favourable to growing grapes in this area. Cantina Pedres, placed in Olbia, started the business on September 2002 by producing wines obtained by selected grapes from Gallura only.
Vineyards from which grapes come (the estate comprises about 40 hectars) are located in the hearth of Gallura. More precisely, they are placed in Monti and Calangianus, two villages at an altitude of about 300 meter above sea level, already known for their wine tradition. Sunny areas with granitic and sandy soils enable low yields but of very good quality.
Sardinia is undoubtedly the fatherland of this vine that, together with Cannonau, is the most typical expression of its wine production.
Of Spanish origins, it landed to Sardinia through Corsica and Santa Teresa di Gallura in the 19th century.
It is a vine of precocious maturation. In the hottest areas, it is harvested during the first ten days of September, with excellent adaptability to diverse climates and types of soil, good resistance to severe weather conditions and cryptograms.
During the last fifteen years, Vermentino underwent a constant increase of selling and it seems to be far from crisis.
Its spread all around Sardinia gives expressions, not only to its typical quality and typicality, but also to its wines and their strong and unique identity, that is representative of different production areas. Wines based on Vermentino are generally dry white wines, of straw yellow colour, with intense scents of wild and herbaceous flowers and a hint of yellow peach.
At the moment, Vermentino vine is employed for DOCG “Vermentino di Gallura”, and DOC “Vermentino di Sardegna” and “ Alghero Vermentino frizzante”.
