Luca Gungui Berteru Cannonau 2018

Berteru means sincere in the Mamoiada dialect. You only need to spend a few minutes with Luca Gungui to know why he gave his wine this name. He himself is a genuine soul. He wants his wine to reflect the expression of the soil and the area from which it comes. That area is the impossibly small town of Mammoiada in the province of Barbagia in the hills of central Sardinia. This is where Cannonau, long considered Sardinia’s most important red, grows best. Cannonau, the grape, is also known as Garnacha or Grenache in neighboring Spain, France, and other parts of the world.
