THE PRODUCER

 Giovanni produces some of the best Grenache you can find from Sardinia. He farms a tiny two hectares inherited from his wife's family, with 2004 being his first released vintage. The vineyards are old and organic, sitting at 650 meters in the mountainous interior of the island. The cooler nights helping to preserve the acidity in this undeniably rich wines.
