Logo Atzei “ Sardinia, for me, is a place that has stolen my heart, producing wine here is what I have been dreaming of for a long time”, Valentino Sciotti explained to WineNews, who knew about this territory as a young man, when he was still far from the wine world, as he was involved in selling trucks there.
“First we worked on acquisitions, which, however, did not materialize, but the desire to produce wine in Sardinia was very strong, so we took another path. We went back to where I had caught a glimpse of this paradise many years ago. In the south of Sardinia, in a village bordering Sanluri, there is Mogoro, where we found a vibrant Cooperative winery that has a deep passion and respect for viticulture. Their weakness was the absence of a strong oenological and commercial partner. In short, both our needs crossed perfectly”. The result is Atzei, “what seemed impossible has been accomplished”. It is no longer a wine Cooperative, but a selection of the best individual vineyards, to produce high quality wines.
There will be four debut wines. Three will be single-variety wines, from Monica, Cannonau and Vermentino grapes, together in the Saragat line, named after a local vineyard and whose origin seems to be linked to “bream fishermen”. And, Aru, which is a blend of Monica, Cannonau and Bovale, the flagship wine.
