This lightly planted Italian varietal originally grew in Corsica and Sardinia. It has become increasingly popular and tends to produce exceptionally rich and complex white wines. It’s pale green color veils the fact that it possesses an elegant nose enhanced with white stone fruits (peaches, plums, mangoes and cherries are the most common stone fruits).
This vermentino is soft-structured and medium-bodied and shows a healthy amount of fruit on the palate, highlighted by both honey and lemon. The finish is long and clean and compliments a wide variety of foods. Oysters (particularly on the half shell) bring out its delicacy and finesse. Enjoy now and until 2021.
