Vermentino di Gallura
Gallura is a well-known region in Sardegna and is known for its granite rocks that are shaped by the wind, by the rain and by the sea. The most of the land is relatively barren and infertile, but towards the north you can find extensive areas who are covered with wineyards. In 1975 Bruno Zanatta, a young oenologist from Treviso, started out on his career here. He was acquiring in-depth knowledge of the terrain and of the Sardinian soil.
In the course of thirty years of his passion for wine, Bruno Zanatta founded a true family-run enterprise, together with his son and his daughter. In 2003 the Zanatta family bought, what would be the starting point of a fruitful winery, 20 acres in a hilly area in Sardegna, about 300 meters above sea level. Two varieties of vines were planted, Vermentino and Cannonau.
Stainless steel tanks and oak barrels:
The fermentation process begins in stainless steel tanks and it finishes in Rovere oak barrels, where it remains for about one year. This final step gives the wine very elegant oak notes that accompany the profound fragrances of ripe and exotic fruits.
Colour: the wine has a deep straw color.
Food suggestion: it pairs well with complex fish dishes, matured cheeses, as well as rice and meat dishes.
The ideal serving temperature is 10°C to 12°C.
Le Saline is a wine of great prestige, a result of Zanatta’s continuous search for a product of the highest level.
A meticulous selection of grapes, harvested from the sandiest and most mineral-rich areas of their vineyards, is given the necessary time to achieve an over-ripening that gives this wine its authentic aroma.
