Top 10 vineyard investments19th April, 2012 by db_staff
8. Sardinia, Italy
In Sardinia the old mantra of soil, sunshine and soul still holds through when making good wine.
The ancient Greeks nicknamed their colonies in the South of Italy, Oenotaria, the land of wine.
Sardinians have sharply reduced vineyards and volume of production recently while notably improving the general quality of their wines, giving into the notion that the potential for vineyard investment is viable here.
The island’s most productive vineyard area is the Campidano, the fertile plains and low rolling hills north west of the capital and major port of Cagliari. The varieties grown there are Girò, Malvasia, Monica, Moscato, Nasco and Nuragus.
A rising star among red wines is Carignano del Sulcis, from the southwest, where certain wineries have emerged with notable style.
