Vermintino. Tempio Pausania, Sardina.
This is top of the tree Sardinian Vermentino with a bit extra. A fresh crisp nose with a distinctive touch of tinned pineapple. On the palate it has a honeyed tone and a long, balanced finish. It is enhanced with seafood.

The name is Sardinian dialect for high ground and the soil is mainly granite. The "Vermentino di Gallura" is the only wine in Sardinia awarded, since 1996, the aspired Denomination of Origin Controlled and Guaranteed.
