"Saline and succulent. A broad swathe of wine picking up fat peaches, bitter almonds, fresh-cut grass and crushed fig leaves in its generous sweep, leaving behind a peppery, crushed-dried-sage-leaf fragrance. Unusually complex Vermentino built broad and marbled, like white colonnades holding strong and still in sunlight, sea winds and the warm brush of ripe figs." (Tamlyn Curring for Jancis Robinson)
Fragrant and intense, this Vermentino reflects Mediterranean garden essences: orange, grapefruit, lemon blossoms, sage, and capers. Tingling acidity brightens its warmer, softer tones.
Pairs well with fish and crustacean first courses. Excellent as aperitif with salted caper hors d’oeuvres.
