Tasting Notes

The Vermentino Etichetta Nera (Black Label) is the winery’s flagship wine and the recepient of many accollades including the coveted 3 Bicchieri Award by Gambero Rosso for 10 consecutive years.

This is a selection from older vines (35 years on average) on hillside with lean clay soils. The traditional characteristics of vermentino are enhanced by the cold maceration (cryomaceration) on the skins which translates into richer and more complex sensations on the nose and in the mouth. All stainless steel. No oak. 3 months on lees.

Aromas range from spring flowers to acacia blossom honey and golden apple. Crisp with a touch of saltyness on the finish.  Due to its complexity this vermetino is best enjoyed with food such as all types of seafood dishes but also poultry and white meat courses.
