Arakena wine - Vermentino DOCG Cantina di Monti
* Required fields
The Spanish brought the Vermentino grape with them: in the local soil this vine-stock found ideal growing conditions, thanks to the thin granite weathering soils, highly permeable and rich in potassium. Old 'bizantteris' grape growers tell us of cultivation techniques: the cuttings of the new vineyard (raglia) are planted in the virgin, freshly levelled soil, or in already cultivated soil left fallow for one year.
The vineyard is cultivated as erect shrub monoculture, spaced close together, tended by hand, bordered by the typical dry stone walls, and a small wooden gate, sa jaghe.
The signature local grape, Vermentino: native to Spain, Listan d'Andalusia reached France - Grosse Clarette, Alvosie d'Espagne, Piccabon - then spread to neighbouring Liguria - Pizzamosca, Corbesso, Vemettino - and finally reached the shores of Corsica and Gallura as Vermentino. Thanks to accurate tending in the vineyard and at the Winery, in 1975 Vermentino was awarded the DOC label - Controlled Place of Origin - and, later, in 1996 DOCG - Controlled and Guaranteed Place of Origin.
