Sardinia is the country that produced this very lovely
vino. This is the first time that I knowingly had the
vermentino grape, as well as a wine from Sardinia, a place
that I remember from some Disney books when I was a child,
and that I would love to visit someday.
The wine itself has very subtle flavors, but is stronger
than a pino grigio. On a small scale, you can detect
apples and pears, but you have to take the time to separate
the flavors from the initial acidity that hits your
tongue. This wine has a nice finish, lasting a good twenty
seconds or more, and this wine is perfect to have along
with a nice seaside breeze.
This wine would pair nicely with light fare, seafood, or
chicken, and probably goes best in a picnic setting with
the straw/wicker picnic basket and a blanket spread out
over the grass. I could easily imagine myself on a boat,
or at the beach in a hammock, enjoying a nice bottle of
this along with a lobster roll.
