Vigne Rada 2018 "Riviera" Cannonau di Sardegna, Sardinia, Italy

A banker by trade, Luigi “Gino” Bardino long entertained a dream of  exiting the stagnant office environment and devoting his life to wine,  his true passion. After years of studying enology in his spare time and  numerous experimental vinifications in his Alghero home, Gino finally  quit his desk job to follow his heart’s desire. With the support of his  family, he planted his own vineyards and built a small winery, and in  2012 Vigne Rada saw its first harvest.

Gino chose only traditional grape varieties to the region, planting one hectare each year between two distinct terroirs.  Monte Pedrosu, where the winery is located, features sandy and clayey  alluvial soils with abundant riverbed stones and quartz, while the  sloping Cubalciada site is home to clay, limestone, and some chalk.  Farming is sustainable, by hand, with help from the whole family.

Cannonau di Sardegna “Riviera”:

The bright, plush Cannonau emphasizes freshness over extraction,  showcasing a lovely purity of fruit and caressing texture on the palate.
