Piero Mancini Vermentino di Gallura
The Piero Mancini winery has been a benchmark producer of Vermentino di Gallura for over thirty years. The winery is located near the port of Olbia in the northwest of Sardegna, near the chic beach resort area of the Costa Smeralda. Alessandro Mancini currently runs the winery along with his brother Antonio and sister Laura, though it was their father, Piero, who founded the estate. The winery’s main production is an exceptional Vermentino di Gallura – a refreshing wine that along with the citrus notes and crisp acidity has great texture and layered notes of salinity and minerality. Sardinian Vermentino is one of the great wines to pair with seafood. There is enough acidity to pair with shellfish, but also enough breadth on the palate to stand up to more meaty fish, or even fish (or light meats) on the grill.
