Located on the Northern part of the Italian island of Sardinia. This family estate was expanded and modernised in the 1970s with the wine going commercial in the 1980. Their style helped to shape the modern interpretation of Vermentino. They are now considered one of the leaders of quality for the island and Vermentino around the world.
I love Vermentino. For about 7 years I’ve been saying it is the next big thing. Check this out! Creamy, slate. stone fruits, dough, flint, candied lemon zest, popcorn. Viscous, classic Vermentino mouthfeel with a streak of acid. Creamy/vanilla, milk dud, dry, briny, long, honeycomb, dry spice. So complex, so lovely. It’ll pair with shellfish or white meats very well. Aging is interesting, it might get a lot better but I love it now. I’d just drink it. Which is what I am doing right now 😉
Vermentino – An impressive white grape suited to warm coastal regions from Liguria down to Bolgheri and Sardinia. Rich aromatics and great texture.
Sardinia – Not a region that has much room to move in terms of increasing volume, but they have been striving to increase quality. A strong bent to white wines is evident and Vermentino is clearly the strongest performer here.
