The winemaking tradition of the Mancini family dates back to the end of the 1800s, in the beautiful Mediterranean setting of Gallura in Sardinia, known for its unique terrain and picturesque coastline. Out of the hard work and perseverance of the youngest descendant, Giovanni Mancini, came the Cantina Pedres, located in Gallura, one of the most valuable wine zones in Italy. Here, the natural factors of the terrain and mild climate provide an optimum environment for vine cultivation. They are dedicated to taking care of every detail, from grape growing to packaging to hospitality, resulting in a line of high-quality wines produced from specially selected, exclusively Gallurese grapes.



The flagship of the estate is the D.O.C.G. Vermentino di Gallura, made from several prime vineyard sites. The Jaldinu is harvested early to maintain its bright acidity. The Thilibas (superiore) comes from lower yielding vines and is harvested a bit later, producing a wine of greater complexity. Both wines are aged in stainless steel and glass, with no oak to mask their unique charm. Pedres Jaldinu is characterized by a straw yellow color with green reflections and a delicately fruity and floral bouquet. It is a dry, fresh wine, ideal as an aperitivo or with seafood, poultry or grilled fish. (8-10°C)


The premium red wine from Pedres is cannonau (the grenache of Chateauneuf-Du-Pape fame), which makes a medium bodied wine of great charm, with excellent structure and a long finish. Pedres Cannonau is characterized by a ruby red color tending toward garnet and a fruity, mature bouquet. It is a dry, warm, slightly tannic wine, ideal with grilled red meat or aged cheeses.
