2014 VILLA SOLAIS VERMENTINO DI SARDEGNASantadi
Producer: Co-operative di Santadi
Grape: Vermentino 85%, Nuragus 15%.
Region: Sardegna, Italy
Zone: Vermentino di Sardegna DOC
Santadi’s vineyards are set in prime, gently rolling land reaching out to sea in the south-western coastal area known as Sulcis. It is unique in that the sandy soil allows pre-phylloxera vines to survive and thrive, a key factor in the supreme quality of the estate’s wines.
Tasting note: Typically crisp and refreshing with mineral notes, a few months maturation on lees has given this wine an extra dimension of flavour and body, adding some ripe tropical fruit notes.
Growing System: Guyot
Soil Composition: Medium mixture, tending to sandy or clayey.
Production: The hand-picked grapes are soft-pressed, and the must obtained is fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature, so as to preserve its fragrance and aromas. The wine is then left in contact with its lees for several months before being bottled.
Alcohol (%) 13.5%
