Vermentino DOC and DOCG

An Elegant White Wine

Vermentino is another typical wine of Sardinia and its wine production. This variety arrived in Sardinia via Corsica in the late 1800s. From granitic soils of Gallura in which has found its ideal habitat, then spread throughout the island. The Vermentino grown in Sardinia gives a wine of great personality which is not found with other Italian and foreign wines, even if obtained from the same grapes. The vine is now present all over the island, and thanks to the different growing environments the wine shows different characteristics and personalities depending on the area of production. In steady and strong growth the consumption of Vermentino seems to know no crisis. The grape Vermentino is currently used for the DOCG Vermentino of Galluraand the DOC Vermentino of Sardinia”, Alghero Sparkling Vermentino ” and “Cagliari Vermentino”. The Vermentino of Gallura shows an intense straw yellow color and bright gold reflections, intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit with white pulp, broom, herbs. In the mouth it offers a feeling of softness and fresh acidity with a final of warm mineral notes.
