ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Cardedu Nuo Vermentino di Sardegna

Cardedu Nuo Vermentino di Sardegna is a savory and light white wine with notes of sage, basil, rosemary, cedar, and a foundation of chalky stone fruits. A leesy texture adds complexity, while a touch of saline minerality lingers. The bright acidity makes it a versatile wine but we recommend it with grilled halibut or a plate of Linguine ai Frutti di Mare and pretending you’re dining al fresco on Sardinia’s sun-soaked, breezy coast.

About Cardedu

Sergio Loi is a 4th generation traditional Sardinian producer, whose family winery from the early 1900s has always practiced no chemical farming and minimum intervention in the cellar. The Cardedu [car-DAY-do] vineyards are located on the island’s sparsely populated southeast coast, where soils are crumbling granite near the coast and schist in ragged-dry cliffs around Jerzu.

Sardinian producers are now catching up in popularity to those of Italy’s other large island, Sicilia. One difference that remains is that Sardinia remains more ‘lost in time.’ Cardedu balances on that edge of being traditional but also thoughtful, especially considering today’s warmer climate. In the last few vintages – extremely hot and dry – Cardedu has made lower alcohol wines by picking earlier and careful vineyard management. The result, thankfully, isn’t 10% alcohol overtly hipster juice without terroir, Sergio says; it’s just wine that tastes more like the cool vintages he enjoyed in the ’70s.
