Villa Solais Vermentino di Sardegna DOC
Brilliant straw yellow color, with green and golden tinges. At nose is fresh and pleasant, on palate is nice with fresh finish together with an attractive mineral note. The Cantina di Santadi Winery is located in the Sulcis area, in South-western Sardinia, just a few miles as the crow flies from the dazzling beaches and white sand dunes of Porto Pino. It was established in 1960, and after some start-up difficulties, a new management gave it a decisive boost, driven by strong determination which fanned enthusiasm and passion.
Thus the Winery embarked on an ambitious programme, adopting new strategies and clear targets, streamlining its operations and issuing coherent guidelines to its member grape growers.
The foremost aim was to stake operations on quality bottled wines, especially typical reds, enhancing and promoting the primary local cultivar: carignano, while not forgetting white grapes with a distinguished tradition in Sardinia, such as vermentino, nuragus and nasco.
Pinot Grigio DOC
自70年代，TENUTA S. Anna一直綿延創新的極限。
繼續研究不同地區品種葡萄酒為重點，關注更多細節，構成更穩健的基礎，這就是TENUTA S. Anna成功要訣。繼承傳統，延續歷史，這是永恆的創新動作。
一個原產地於法國的葡萄品種，現在在意大利成為世界最有名的葡萄：在東北地區（Veneto, Friuli 和 Trentino Alto Adige）找到了理想的種植地方，製造出的白葡萄酒充滿濃郁的葡萄果香，適合配合各式各樣的菜餚。
Poggiobello Friulano DOC
More than any other, this wine truly expresses the territory for which it was named. In fact, in Friuli, ‘the Friuliano’ (which used to be called Tocai) is practically a synonym for white wine. Previously known as ‘Savignonassa’, due to its similarities to Sauvignon, it is destined to become standard bearer for enology in Friuli. Moderately intense straw-yellow. Its mineral scent combines with the smell of a cultivated garden (sage, flowers). It wins over the palate with full-bodied aromatic sensations that don’t only recall fruit, but more complex sensations. It finishes with the sharp sensation of toasted almonds.
When Genagricola acquired Azienda Agricola Poggiobello in 1974, its vineyards covered a small surface area of only 12 hectares. This territory is internationally recognized as one of Italy’s best for the production of white wine and its extraordinary potential proved a driving force behind the decision to invest in these vineyards. The company gradually initiated a series of lot acquisitions near the Company’s the winery. The company now boasts a surface area of 110-hectares, ninety of which host cultivated vineyards. It grows ancient indigenous varieties like Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, Refosco, Verduzzo Friulano and Picolit (of which Poggiobello owns the largest portion of the Colli Orientali Consortium). Moreover, the company also grows the most known international varieties such as merlot and sauvignon , which have been cultivated in this territory for centuries.

Tirsat IGT Gurra di Mare
A blend of Chardonnay and Viognier. The first wine of the new winery Gurra di Mare located in Porto Palo (Menfi), Sicily; a perfect terroir for the two international grape varieties. A golden yellow colour with an intense and complex nose that leads to apricot and yellow peaches aromas, white flowers, spices and honey. A sweet exotic intensity that combined with a pleasant freshness conveys in an harmonic wine.
Just under two hectares of Chardonnay and Viognier, on the terrains that descend all the way to the sea, in a unique micro-climate and surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Taking care of a vineyard in a terroir such as this demands a precise and extremely meticulous care. But the results can offer great satisfaction.
The only wine produced by Gurra di Mare is called Tirsat, which in Arabic means reef (it is no coincidence that the ancient name of Porto Palo was “Tirsat abi Tawr”). A name that pays homage to the character of a land that throughout the course of its history has served as a meeting point between different worlds and cultures. Tirsat is a blend of Chardonnay and Viognier grapes vinified based on the French “batonnage” technique (based on keeping the yeast cells in contact with the wine) to give life, in the lands made famous by the production of Planeta wines, to an elegant white with a fruity and very harmonious character.
Carolina Marengo Grillo
Grillo is perhaps Sicily’s lesser known grape variety, although it is certainly not inferior to other white grape varieties. Label drawn by Carolina Marengo.
A straw-yellow wine characterised by rich apple and pear notes, which render it instantly recognisable and appreciated. The taste is warm and dry, slightly tannic and displaying a citric aroma.
Feudi del Pisciotto has the new vineyards (33 hectares planted since 2002) situated at about 250 meters of altitude and 6 km from the sea as the crow flies. It benefits therefore of two climatic moderators: altitude where arrive the sea breezes, and the sea itself, a great compensator of the temperature. The vineyards of Feudi del Pisciotto have 50% of the red wine king of the island, the Nero d’Avola, and 50% of international red wines like Cabernet, Merlot, etc and two white wines Semeiloon and Gewuz Traminer, for an unusual Passito.
Vinsanto San Giminiano DOC
Respectful of old Tuscan traditions, this wine is made from a meticulous selection of Trebbiano, Malvasia and San Colombano grapes, methodically withered on fruit drying racks. After vinification, Vin Santo ages for over 4 years in partially full casks, stored in the historical attics of Cusona.
Guicciardini Strozzi (two families united by marriage) is one of the oldest producers in Tuscany. Their business boasts over 1000 years of activity, with the earliest testimony to Cusona’s existence dating back to 994 AD. The Guicciardini Strozzi winery produces 22 varieties of wines. Amongst the best known labels is the Vernaccia di San Gimignano, which was produced for the first time by the winery in 1200 and exalted by Dante, Michelangelo and Boccaccio.
