Sassari. It is not superstitious, the Sardinia of wine, and you can enjoy his thirteen "Tre Bicchieri" prizes in the guide Wines of Italy 2019 composed by Gambero Rosso. A record of recognition by the prestigious publication for an island that does not cease to amaze and confirms that it wants to emerge: the presence of companies in the selections grows, while the winners grow. But there are also other bottles that can boast access to the finals or the "Due bicchieri" prize, which is still relevant. White wines were in particular the highlight for the 2017 wines, despite the warm climate: the island productions have also maintained an excellent balance despite the higher concentration. But also the volumes of 2016 and (especially for the red wines and especially for the Cannonau) 2015 have achieved excellent results.
The news. There are six wineries that have tasted for the first time of winning the "Tre Bicchieri": the Cannonau of Sardinia 2016 of the "Antonella Corda" by Serdiana even at the absolute debut in the publication. First time on the highest step also for the Santa Maria La Palma Winery (Alghero) with its Cannonau di Sardegna R Riserva 2015, a result with a special taste for a company that focuses mainly on Vermentino. From Alghero, coast Sella & Mosca, there is also the Torbato Catore 2017 (Tenute Sella & Mosca), the last born that already wins. From the Marmilla comes another red, the 2016 Bovale from "Su Entu" from Sanluri. And for the Vermentino di Sardegna here is the first "Tre Bicchieri" for the That 2017 from Delogu (Alghero) and Azzesu-Tenuta del Vulcano Pelao 2017 ("Andrea Ledda" by Bonnanaro): reaches 700 meters, with vineyards that sink into volcanic soil.

Want to become an adult. It is the result of the great work done by the whole sector, and has decided to focus on innovation and quality, as well as on the attractiveness of its image and its unique scents: in addition to doing, small businesses led by young enthusiasts and with many ideas even the big cellars and cooperatives, with some flaws in communication and marketing skills, even though something is slowly changing even in this respect.
