Villa Solais Vermentino di Sardegna is matured in stainless steel with short lees contact to give the palate more body and flavour. It has the typical apricot kernel, floral and briny characters. Drink over the next three years and match it with fresh white fleshed fish.
Santadi’s vineyards are set in prime, gently rolling land reaching out to sea in the south-western coastal area known as Sulcis. It is unique in that the sandy soil allows pre-phylloxera vines to survive and thrive, a key factor in the supreme quality of the estate’s wines.
An impressive white grape suited to warm coastal regions from Liguria down to Bolgheri and Sardinia. Rich aromatics and great texture.
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.
