Tasting Notes

The Vermentino ‘Grey Label’ (a.k.a. Etichetta Grigia) is all about freshness and it is considered by many the best expression of true Ligurian Vermentino. Straw yellow with golden highlights. It opens with fresh and bright fruit, citrus, wild flowers and notes of acacia blossom honey. On the palate it is crisp and elegant with a touch of minerality on the finish. Especially suited for all types of seafood dishes but also on its own as an apertif it will transport straight to the Riviera!
