Cherchi 2015 "Filighe" Vermentino di Sardegna Metodo Classico, Sardinia, Italy

Cherchi has been a point of reference for many producers in Sardinia on account of Giovanni Cherchi’s contribution to the fame of Vermentino di Sardegna beyond the regional boundary. A long time veteran of the wine business in this region, Giovanni Cherchi started his career in 1970 as a winegrower after inheriting a 2 ha vineyard and selling fruit to other wineries in the region. He started producing his own wine with the 1980 vintage and has since passed the torch to his children Salvatore, Annalisa and Maria, while continuing to oversee the work in both the vineyard and winery. 

WINEMAKERS: Salvatore Cherchi

VARIETIES: Vermentino di Sardegna

FARMING: Sustainable

TERROIR: Hilly terrain located about 200 meters above sea level. Soil is a mix of limestone and clay.

VINIFICATION:  After destemming-crushing, grapes are soft-pressed. The must  ferments at a temperature of 17/18°C with indigenous yeasts and then matures in steel tanks for 6 months in order to provide aromatic richness and complexity. The wine then re-ferments in the bottle (traditional method) and refines on its yeasts for 18 months.
