Winemaker: Giovanni Cherchi 
We love Giovanni and his wines, having featured his Cagnulari this spring.  So we were stoked to get our hands on two 6-packs (that's it -- our importer only got 20!) on this lovely sparkling Vermentino, Sardinia's dominant white grape.  Made in the Champagne method, it's classic with an island twist -- there's a hint of salt in the finish that reminds you of the beautiful place from which this wine hails.  Perfect for apertivo hour with salty snacks.
