    Winemaker Notes

    Great balance between acidity, alcohol, and fruit with extremely rich, intense aromas of white flowers and almonds, along with complex tropical nuances that pleasingly linger on the palate.

    Pair with seafood such as shellfish, oysters and even white meats like rabbit and pork.

    The Jankara estate was founded in 2006 when Renato and Angela Spanu first purchased 21 acres of untouched hillside land in the prestigious vein of San Leonardo within the highlands of Gallura. In 2008, The Spanus planted 11 of the original 21 acres with the Vermentino grape. In 2013, Renato and Angela Spanu were joined by their long time friends and world class Chef and Restauranteurs Angelo and Denise Elia- the owners of the famous “Casa D’Angelo Restaurants” in South Florida, in a new partnership that will help propel Jankara to new levels. The Estate is located between the towns of Luras and Sant’Antonio di Gallura near Lake Liscia, at about 300 meters above sea level and about 25 minutes from the prestigious Costa Smeralda beaches. A deep passion for Sardinia and particularly Gallura, the homeland of Renato, brought them to pursue this fantastic dream of realizing a world class wine and promoting the beauty and richness of the Gallura granite mountains and soils to the world. After much sacrifice and very hard work, the couple along with the help of their new partners Angelo and Denise have come to create Jankara; a true expression of their love of wine and the amazing ancient land called Gallura!

    Hailed for centuries as a Mediterranean vine-growing paradise, multiple cultures over many centuries have ruled the large island of Sardinia. Set in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Phonoecians, Ancient Rome, and subsequently the Byzantines, Arabs and Catalans have all staked a claim on the island at some point in history. Along the way, these inhabitants transported many of their homeland’s prized vines and today Sardinia’s modern-day indigenous grape varieties claim multiple origins. Sardinia’s most important red grapes—namely Cannonau (a synonym for Grenache) and Carignan—are actually of Spanish origin.

    Vermentino, a prolific Mediterranean variety, is the island’s star white. Vermentino has a stronghold the Languedoc region of France as well as Italy’s western and coastal regions, namely Liguria (where it is called Pigato), Piedmont (where it is called Favorita) and in Tuscany, where it goes by the name, Vermentino. The best Vermentino, in arguably all of the Mediterranean, grows in Sardinia's northeastern region of Gallura where its vines struggle to dig roots deep down into north-facing slopes of granitic soils. These Vermentino vines produce highly aromatic, full and concentrated whites of unparalleled balance.

    Today aside from its dedication to viticulture, Sardinia remains committed to maintaining its natural farmlands, bucolic plains of grazing sheep and perhaps most of all, its sandy, sunny, Mediterranean beaches.

    A fantastic, aromatic white grape that grows with great success in Sardinia, Tuscany and in lesser proportions on the island of Corsica. Somm Secret—Vermentino is thought to be genetically identical to Liguria’s Pigato grape and Peidmont’s Favorita. It comprises a large proportion of the whites in southern France where it is called Rolle.
