Vermentino, which has acclimatised well throughout Sardinia, is grown in the north-eastern corner of the Sella&Mosca estate, on ancient alluvial soil. Its very concentrated nose shows great complexity that focuses on the variety’s aromatic typicity. The palate has firm structure, with taut flickers of marine salinity backed by fruity notes in the soft finish.
