SKU #1369204 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Aromas of Spanish broom, ripe apricot and yellow peach lead the nose and carry over to the round palate. Fresh acidity accompanies the juicy fruit flavors while an almond note closes the finish. (KO)  (10/2015)

K&L Notes

This is a 100% Vermentino grape wine, cultivated in alluvial soils of granite rocks. The only DOCG (Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin) in Sardinia. This is a source of Gallura pride for the makers and people of the region.

The island of Sardinia lies in the heart of the Mediterranean, and is populated not just with people, goats and grapevines, but with thousands of strange, beehive-shaped megalithic towers dating to the 2nd millennium BC called nuraghi. Speculation as to their true purpose runs from tombs to astronomical observatories to fortresses, but I imagine with their well-constructed walls they would also make excellent wine cellars! Fortunately for us not all the wine produced in and around these stone beehives stays in Sardinia. Vermentino may not have originated there, but it certainly has found a welcome home, especially in the northwest corner of the island in the Gallura DOCG. Tantalizingly aromatic, with a faintly oily texture, this assertive white wine effortlessly marries acidity to fruit, and often finishes with a subtle green almond note that pairs well with seafood and summer salads.

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.
