Vermentino di Sardegna Villa Solais DOC

This celebrated winery takes its name from the medieval town of Santadi, in the Sulcis peninsula of southwest Sardinia – a landscape of dramatic contrasts and beauty where the dazzling white sand dunes of Porto Pino compete only with the Pantaleo forest and its centuries-old oak trees, cork trees, holly oaks and deer. From a blend of two white native grapes, Vermentino and Nuragus, this beautiful straw yellowy with green and golden reflections, with intriguing freshness, and mineral notes on the nose and palate.
