Wonderful wildflower bouquet with peachy and grapey notes. Vivacious, bright, tingling and full of flavour. Young and delicious, it dances on the palate. One of the best Vermentino blends I’ve tried. Drinking Window 2020 - 2024

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Sardinia: With a rugged, mountainous inland and gorgeous sandy beaches, safely secluded on the Mediterranean sea lies Sardinia. This beautiful island is known and loved for different reasons, including its position, culture, nature, and many more. For sommeliers, though closely intertwined with other mentioned aspects, viticulture stands out. Italy needs no introduction when it comes to its superior wines. However, the geographical distance between this island and Italian mainland illustrates well the difference in their winemaking. The typically Italian grape varieties that one thinks of first are very rarely found on this island, the most prominent types of which being Vermentino and Malvasia. Instead, Sardinia is known for growing some nearly exclusive vines like Nasco, Monica, Nuragus, Semidano, Torbatto and Niederra. Other more internationally recognized grapes grown here include Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Grenache. Most of the wine here is consumed locally, the still whites featuring herbaceous, tropical, flinty notes and the reds known for their gentle tannins and earthy overtones. Sardinia's international recognition is on the upswing, though, as this island shows some impressive potential for winemaking in the future. If you're looking to explore the most enigmatic parts of Italian winemaking, a bottle from Sardinia will deliver more than you could have possibly imagined.
Type of Wine Italy (Other): There are dozens of grape varietals grown in Italy so no wonder they produce such a broad range of most exquisite wines. Some of the most cultivated red varieties are Nebbiolo, Aglianico, Sangiovese, and Barbera, while Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are also popular. Among whites, you're likely to find Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano, or Vernaccia varietals.
Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
