Cantina Trexenta Contissa Vermentino di Sardegna


85% Vermentino [ver-men-tee-no], 15% Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc (% varies by vintage)

Pale straw-like color (typical for Vermentino), lemon, green apple, apricot and herbal fragrances. Palate shows bold apricot and peach, banana, pineapple, grape skin, and with a zing of acidity toward the finish. Medium in body. Think Pinot Grigio, only with more depth. Drink young.





Once again, I hold firm to my statement that: ALL ITALIAN WINES NEED FOOD!
If you go to Sardinia, you’ll never see any of the locals sat around drinking wine by itself. There’s always something on the table, whether it be as simple as Pane Guttiau, all the way through to a 7-course feast.
With Vermentino, you can’t go wrong with fresh seafood, oysters, white fish, smoked meats, salad, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, baked breads, gnocchi, and homemade pasta.
