JANKARA

VERMENTINO DI GALLURA SUPERIORE DOCG

bottiglia vermentino Jankara

Our vermentino di Gallura Superiore DOCG Jankara is made entirely from grapes coming from the very low yield vines of our vineyards, located at about 300 meters above sea level.

Da uve vermentino. Affina in acciaio per 7 mesi. Paglierino brillante. Il ventaglio aromatico si presenta sfaccettato dove si susseguono erbe aromatiche, pietra focaia e iodio. Al palato è saporito, scattante, asciutto, tutto giocato sulla sapidità e freschezza. Il finale è complesso disteso e molto lungo.

Allo stato attuale penso che sia il miglior vermentino di Gallura in assoluto.

VINEYARD OF ORIGIN

GRAPES

100% Vermentino

VINEYARD AGE

Planted in 2008

HARVEST

Exclusively picked and selected by hand in 20 Kg boxes, Mid-September

CLIMATE

During the day Gallura is very warm with temperatures rising
to 95º F (35ºC). These warm days are tempered by cool nights where the temperature can drop by 30 degrees.

SOIL

Gallura soil is primarily granite in composition giving Vermentino its
trademark minerality.

ALTITUDE

Gallura is divided into two sections: Bassa-Gallura, the lower section,
and Alta-Gallura, the higher section. Jankara is located in Alta-Gallura.

TERROIR

Located in a prestigious sub-zone called Vena di San Leonardo which is equal distance from the sea, about 20 kilometers, to the North, East, and West.

To the South of the vineyard is the mountain Limbara which protects the vineyard from the hot winds coming of the coast of Africa. Directly next the vineyard is Lake Liscia, which helps stablize the temperatures of the microclimate.

Due to the microclimate of San Leonardo the harvest season for this area is a month later (mid to late September) than the rest of Sardinia which allows the Vermentino grapes to become more complex and more aromatic.
