Cantina Gallura Piras is made with 100% Vermentino wine grapes from the Sardinia wine region.
Cantina Gallura - in Tempio Pausania, at the foot of the Limbara, the winery has collected the age-old tradition of wine-growers of high Gallura, already known in the nineteenth century also outside islanders for producing a muscat(moscato) of excellence. The strict selection systems, modern winemaking process and aging in barrels, we produce high quality wines with organoleptic characteristics attuned to the changing tastes and needs of consumers. Spearhead of the Cantina Gallura is the "Vermentino di Gallura", the only wine in Sardinia awarded, since 1996, of the aspired Denomination of Origin Controlled and Guaranteed. The five types products Canayli and Genesis (the Superior), Piras, Gemellae and Mavriana, all of excellent quality, are the result of the most advanced technologies: wines that have won many national and international awards. Besides the native cultivars, Vermentino, Cannonau, Moscato, Pascale, Caricagiola, members of the Cantina Gallura grow the "Nebbiolo" vine, latter imported from Piedmont in 1700. From the vinification of these grapes are obtained three wines of quality, Karana, Dolmen and the new Luna Nova which quickly imposed themselves to the attention of audiences and critics.
