Together with Cannonau, Vermentino was the first Sardinian wine to conquer the continent and today it is one of the most in demand. There are two designations in Sardinia: Vermentino di Sardegna DOC, produced all over the island, and Vermentino di Gallura DOCG, where production is limited to the Gallura area and it's the only DOCG on the island. The denomination 'Vermentino di Gallura' DOCG is reserved for the following wines, which meet the very strict quality conditions and requirements established by the product specifications: 'Vermentino di Gallura' Superiore; 'Vermentino di Gallura' Frizzante; 'Vermentino di Gallura' Spumante; 'Vermentino di Gallura' Passito; 'Vermentino di Gallura' Vendemmia tardiva. The 'Vermentino di Gallura' DOCG wines must be obtained from grapes harvested at vineyards with the following ampelografic composition: Vermentino, 95% minimum. Other non-aromatic white wine varieties can contribute to the production of these wines. However, they must be cultivated on the Sardinian territory and registered on the national register of wine varieties with wine grapes that are available in up to 5% of the vineyard.
