2015 Cantina di Gallura "Genesi" Vermentino di Gallura

SKU #1331177

This multi-layered Vermentino was a hit with staff--see reviews below--and it isn't just a light summer sipper. Don't miss it! The Cantina Sociale Gallura is located in the town of Tempio Pausania on the foothills of Mount Limbara. This cooperative was founded in 1956 and it currently has 160 producers contributing their grapes. The total area of planted vineyards is about 600 acres. The soil, a mix of sand and rock, is poor, and the vines have to struggle to survive this hostile environment. The limited grape yield offers unique and prized qualities. Most of the properties are planted with Vermentino, Nebbiolo and Moscato varietals.

The delicate straw color of the 2015 "Genesi" Vermentino di Gallura is followed by beautiful aromas of almonds, oranges, lemon, honey, apple skins, and a hint of tropical fruits. This crisp, elegant, Full-bodied white has layers of herbs, citrus and a touch of apricot,, with excellent acidity, fresh and long. I love this as an aperitif, or as a broadly useful table wine (roast chicken, fish...).

This is the best Vermentino that I have ever had; in fact I didn’t think Vermentino could be this good at all. The nose is almost surreal, it is just full of dried flowers, dosed with just a hint of salty sea spray, coupled with a stone fruit compote. On the palate the wine is powerful, yet it has no oak aging, the fruit filled, saline nature combine on your tongue to give a tactile experience in a finish that seems infinite, it carries through the complex fruit character in a full-bodied, un-oaked powerhouse, that lasts minutes in your mouth.
Drink from 2017 to 2021

This is one Italian white you don’t want to miss this holiday season. It is stunning! On the nose, flowers, bright orange citrus, cream, exotic spice and leesy richness. The texture is supple and satisfying, but with stellar acidity to bring that richness into focus on the finish, which just keeps going and going. This may be the best Vermentino I’ve ever tried.

This incredible bottle of Vermentino Di Gallura has the kind of effortless class, seamless texture and near infinite length that one only expects from the most famous white Burgundy producers. If you are looking for a flat out great bottle of white wine that is a real discovery, try this Cantina Di Gallura Genesi. It makes a great drink on its own, but I can't wait to try it with crab risotto!

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
