Deliciously fresh and amazing salinity! The origins of Vermentino are shrouded in mystery. According to one theory, it arrived from Spain and then spread along the Mediterranean coast until it reached Corsica and Sardinia. Others believe its country of origin is Italy. It flourishes in sunny climates and in poor soils. Vermentino’s name derives from the Latin word “verbena”, used by Dante in the Divine Comedy to refer to a fragile twig – a characteristic that is shared by the shoots of this grape variety.
The grapes are brought to a maturity that preserves freshness and the right parameters of acidity. After careful selection in the vineyard, the grapes are harvested by hand and pressed; the must obtained is fermented using only indigenous yeasts.
The wine is then aged in stainless steel until bottling.
We intervene only to observe and to ensure the wine stays in tune with nature: nothing is added and nothing is taken away. No sulphites are added and no filtration is carried out.
Naturally cloudy, our skin-contact Vermentino is straw-yellow in color with flashes of gold. It is fruity, floral on the nose with notes of Mediterranean scrub. The wine pairs well with bold foods such as omelets, pasta with fish or vegetable sauce, cheeses.
