Vermentino di Gallura 2021
The sun was beginning to set toward the west as the lone fisherman looked longingly at his motionless line. The stillness had been the order of the day, with a clear sky and no noise but for an occasional wave hitting a distant shoreline. Just as he reached to reel in the line and resign himself to a bland evening repast, the tip of the pole bent forcefully down. Snatching the rod, he grinned widely and began to reel in his catch. Looking down at the bottle of white wine tucked into his worn leather satchel, he smiled and thought, “My friend, you will have a partner at the table tonight!”

Aromas of passionfruit and ripe melon leap from the glass as if spring loaded, immediately revealing the incredibly perfumed nature of this gorgeous straw gold offering. The palate follows the nose with a surprisingly rich body wreathed in expressive notes of mango and sweet peach resolving into a pleasingly zesty acidity.
Sardinia, the island from which this unique wine hails, is blessed with stunning natural beauty defined by a gentle Mediterranean climate, pristine beaches, and breathtaking rock formations. The famed English author D.H. Lawrence said it best, “Sardinia is out of time and history. This land resembles no other place.” We believe Vermentino di Gallura follows the quote, however regarding wine rather than just place. Vermentino di Gallura is the only region on the island awarded Italy’s prestigious DOCG appellation, the highest quality of wine recognized in all of Italy. When tasting this wine, it is easy to understand why it merits such high standing.
