Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw yellow with green tinges.

Aroma

The nose is intense with hints of apple and bitter almond.

Palate

This medium bodied wine has a lightness to it which is refreshing, showing lovely citrus and minerality on the palate, plus just a hint of sea-spray. Long and savoury and very moreish!

Food Matching

Serve well chilled with a range of fresh fish and shell fish. A dry white crying out for deep fried squid, natural oysters, grilled fish and white fish and chips! Also a wonderful aperitivo with Carta di Musica (unique Sardegna style unleavened bread).

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Cantina del Vermentino cooperative was established in 1956 and today counts over 300 associate producers who together own and tend 500 ha. of vineyards in the Communes of Gallura: Monti, Telti, Olbia and Loiri Porto San Paolo, just inland from beautiful Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) in northwestern Sardegna.

The vineyards in Gallura are planted on soils of granitic origin, at elevations of between 300 and 450 m.a.s.l. Gallura benefits from a very mild, appropriately humid climate moderated by its proximity to the sea and year-round winds keep the vines and berries healthy. Most of the annual rainfall occurs inautumn and winter, and the warm to hot summer days are contrasted by cool nights, creating excellent conditions for grape growing.

The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel and remains in tank until bottling early in the New Year. The aim is to produce a pure yet savoury, complex and textured dry white food wine.
