The Panevino winery is located just outside the small town of Nurri between Ogliastra and Barbagia. Behind Panevino we find Gianfranco Manca, a restless man, angular and silent, who strongly believes in his territory of origin. At a young age, Gianfranco took over his uncle's bakery, cooking the classic Sardinian bread he learned to make from his mother and aunts. His bread is still appreciated in his city and the bakery was a success. Together with the bakery, Gianfranco also inherited lots of land with very old vines. Today there are six hectares of vines, planted mainly in Cannonau with another 30 different vines. All the vines are raised in sapling that Gianfranco knows one by one. His is an ancient viticulture made of fatigue and sweat, managed with an absolute knowledge of agriculture and territorial heritage. In the cellar it does not use sulphites, does not apply filtrations, and reduces human interventions to the minimum necessary. Only 20000 bottles produced in which Gianfranco does not look for a wine that reflects the territory, but a wine that tells the man who does it. And his wines, out of the box in the names and in the grapes, which change every year, resemble him.
