The Vernaccia provides a lovely herbaceous character, bitter almonds and is quite floral, especially on the nose. The Vermentino then adds a zesty lime and stone fruit component. Whilst the nose is delicate, the body is full and the fruits, flowers and bitter almonds really shine.
The wine was fermented with its yeasts, after gentle pressing in stainless steel and glass lined concrete tanks and lees (yeast) stirring. It then spent several months in bottle before being released. This wine can be aged for several years in the bottle if stored in the right conditions.
Due to the body and weight it will stand up to heavier foods, however due to the lack of oak it will also still appeal to people who like wines such as Sauvignon Blanc all the way through to Viognier, Marsanne and heavier styles of un-oaked Chardonnay.
If you like textural whites you will love it I’m sure!
Four generations have overseen the production of wine over 120 years, which began with Vernacchia Di Oristano and was later joined by various other varietals. This winery has evolved with time, continuing to improve by adding new winemaking techniques and ideas. With an organic philosophy, the family oversees approximately 100 hectares of vines along the Sinis Peninsula, Tirso Valley and on the slopes of Mount Arci. Vineyards span many different areas with various soil types and micro climates, allowing different grapes to be grown and creating incredible individuality.
