An elegant collection of four varietal wines.
Each offering the distinctive characteristics of the
indigenous Sardinian grapes and sea-facing
land that birth it.
Vigna Rada honors nature in the fields
and innovation in the cellar,
only offering wines that are
exceptional, distinctive, and pure.
From Vermentino vines that breathe in the Mistral winds and soak up the quartz-rich soil of their native Sardinia. An elegant and exclusive dessert wine made only on select years when botrytis cinerea (or “Noble Rot”) spontaneously grows on the indigenous grapes – naturally intensifying sweetness and adding a notable flavor.
An ancient and rare grape variety recently rediscovered. While difficult to grow, for those willing to wait, Arsenaleoffers a structure adapt for aging and a unique, complex, and aromatic body worth savoring. Each vintage is limited and numbered.
Harvested by hand only when grapes have reached full phenolic maturity. Aged in temperature controlled casks, as opposed to heavy wooden barrels, offering an elegant and refined body distinguishing it from a traditional Cannonau. Soft, warm, and slightly spicy. A respectful and passionate deviation from convention.
The salty coastal air and mineral terrain of Vigne Rada render this 100% pure Vermentino truly unique. Stria is the product of innovative winemaking that leaves the grape’s natural organoleptic characteristics unaltered: picked at full maturity and only gently pressed for a result that is notably dry and which exalts the celebrated flavor of Vermentino.
“The northwest coast of Sardinia. An exclusive harbor. Salty ocean air. Land rich with quartz and minerals. Indigenous grapes. World-renowned passion. I truly believe you can taste each of these elements in our wine.
In fact, our commitment is to exalt the potential of every grape, for pure and distinctive wines that pay tribute to this unparalleled land.”
Vermentino is a refined white grape grown primarily in Sardinia and some regions in the south of France.
Sardinia, however, is the only place where Vermentino is protected through a DOCG (Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin) in the Gallura region or DOC for the whole of Sardinia (Denomination of Controlled Origin).
Production has increased significantly over the past few decades; reaching almost 20 million bottles a year and with fast growing international recognition for its crisp, uniquely sharp and high quality flavour.
