It’s a White Wine obtained by a maniacal selection of Vermentino grapes coming from 30 years old vineyards, located in the territory of Monti (SS) north-east of Sardinia, also named Gallura.
The soils where they grows are composed by granite-rock sand, poor in organic matter, but rich in minerals, which gives longevity and aromatic complexity to wine.
From some years the conduct of the vineyards is organic, without using fertilizers of chemical derivation.
Harvesting is done manually in plastic containers during the month of September; the grapes delivered are processed within a few hours of collection, cooled by a bundle of tubes to preserve and improve their perfumes, and macerate for a day inside the press with the flower most (film maceration).
Fermentation and vinification happens in steel tanks at controlled temperature for about 7 months with frequent bâtonnage. Subsequently the wine obtained is clarified and then bottled.
Vermentino di Gallura DOCG, White 2020
Wine with a beautiful golden yellow color with bright greenish reflexses. In the glass it is consistent but sliding, with dense and regular bows that make sense of the complexity of the product.
On the nose is quite complex and persistent, with scents of ripe white pulp fruit and obvious mineral and iodinated notes. Fine and elegant hints of summer stain. Little perceptible alcohol.
In the mouth it is complex, broad, soft, with acidity and sapidity to give it a beautiful freshness, fine and persistent, dry. Very balanced wine where the alcohol seems to disappear within its structure. It closes with a slight note of bitter almond typical of Vermentino worked in purity.
Very pleasant wine and satisfying drink, very harmonious, with excellent potential for bottle improvement.
Great with Fin de Claire oysters and seafood in general, scampi and raw shrimp, sashimi and fish tartare. Rices and pastas based on crustaceans or bottarga. Seconds of sea-fish or grilled fish, white meats. Also good with fresh soft / semi-dough cheeses such as local production pecorino cheese.
