2016 Vermentino di Sardegna, Il Roccolo, Natale Verga, Sardinia

Description

Typically pale in colour, the nose is perfumed, hinting at blossom and ripe fruit that errs towards tropical in character. Fresh acidity and a hint of phenolic grip act as a foil to the ripeness. Salinity on the finish adds to the complexity. Drink now to 2018.

Vermentino/Pigato

Vermentino/Pigato

Vermentino is a white wine grape, also known as Rolle (in Rousillion and Provence) & Malvoisie in Corsica . It migrated from the Iberian Peninsula in the late 1300s (Madeira?) into Corsica, Sardinia, Liguria and Tuscany during the 15th century.
Traditionally believed to be related to Malvasia, recent DNA studies have instead revealed traits in common with the Hungarian Furmint.

Vermentino di Gallura DOCG is one of the most famous incarnation - The grape has recently become fashionable in parts of central Italy. Often blended for its structure, on its own the grape displays aromatic ripe peach and honeyed notes and a full body.

Tenuta di Valgiano incorporate a significant slug of this grape into their 'Giallo dei Muri' Tuscan wine
