Sun-worshipping Vermentino is in its element in Sardinia’s hot, dry climes. It produces a white wine that echoes the island’s heady scent of broom. It’s a grape with naturally medium acidity, and notes of peach, white flowers, apples, sage, and lemon citrus. It ages in a similar way to Riesling, showing minerality and petrolly characters over time.
Colour: pale straw yellow with slight greenish glints.
Nose: intensely floral, fresh and fruity.
Taste: intense and persistent, acidic, with delicate and characteristic bitter notes at the finish.
GRAPES: 100% Vermentino.
AREA OF PRODUCTION : Territory surrounding the Winery, characterised by medium texture soils composed of clayey limestone of Miocene origin, medium height slopes, sub-arid climate.
PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY : After an accurate selection of the most suitable plots, grapes are de-stemmed and crushed and then gently pressed. The obtained must is clarified by cold static decanting and selected yeasts are added to the clean part. Fermentation takes place at a temperature of 14-16°C for about fourteen days. When fermentation is complete, the wine remains on the fine lees for about 45 days and is bottled in the spring following the harvest to keep its fresh characteristics intact.
AGEING : In perfect storage conditions, it can be aged for a further period of 2 years from bottling date.
STORAGE TEMPERATURE : In cool, dry places protected from the light.
SERVING TEMPERATURE : 10°-12°C.
SERVE WITH : Seafood appetisers, grilles and stewed fish
