A slightly salty Vermentino with notes of citrus with mid-palate texture and refreshing acidity.
Variety: 100% Vermentino
The Vermentino has a mineral salinity to it that speaks to its place of origin, with notes of green apple, grapefruit and lime, and refreshing acidity. A short period of lees contact increases mid-palate texture.
Fermented without the use of commercial yeasts in stainless steel tanks with a short period of lees contact. The wine ages in stainless steel tanks for 8-12 months before being bottled without fining or filtration.
