This is a rich textured traditional Sardinian style of Vermentino designed to be enjoyed with richer creamier foods. The nose is full of spicy floral tones, citrus blossom, pear and hints of oak while the palate is rich and full with a creamy texture and a long persistent finish. This wine has been further enhanced and enriched through the partial use of natural fermentation in new oak.

A sprinkle of hail early on in the season damaged some of the outside bunches. Overall fruit quality was good.
Made in a richer style designed to be enjoyed with food. 21% was barrel fermented using natural yeast to enhance the depth and texture.
Food Pairing Notes
This rich wine demands something creamy to pair with. A creamy pasta marinara or oily fish such as Salmon work best.
