Vermentino di Gallura DOCG

From a single granite-rich vineyard near Gallura. Harvested in early fall, the grapes are delicately pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages in stainless steel as well for about six months followed by two months in bottle. It shows the appellation’s hallmark balance between alcohol, acidity, and fruit. Intensely aromatic with tropical nuances and a lovely finish.
