Giovanna Chessa Mattariga Vermentino di Sardegna DOC


Giovanna Chessa’s small, family-owned estate is in the north-west corner of the island of Sardinia, near the city of Sassari; the soil here is limestone-rich. Giovanna’s winemaking style is elegant, transparent and expressive, and the wines are clean but full of character, made entirely of indigenous varieties.  

Pale yellow in color, this 100% Vermentino shows aromas and flavors of lemon-peel, flowers and ‘macchia,’ the smell of the wild herbs that surround the limestone-rich vineyards. Fresh acidity makes this a very versatile food wine (a natural choice with seafood), and I love it as a dry aperitif too.
