Monovarietal wine with partial evolution in barrique, Elba Vermentino DOC is straw yellow, elegant and has an intense fragrance, with a large, long and flowing flavour, insular in its essence. It goes well with the best Mediterranean cuisine.
Elba Vermentino DOC
Rocky, clay and sandy soil, originating from rock erosion and fluvial processes.
Manual in ventilated crates
The grapes, selected on the plant, are de-stemmed and pumped into the press where they are briefly macerated; following a soft pressing, the fre-run must is decanted cold into steel tanks, before being fermented in a controlled temperature between 16 and 18°C. There is no malolactic fermentation.
The wine is refined “sur lies” (on their own fine lees) partly in steel, partly in steam bent, slightly toasted well-aged French oak barriques.
Straw yellow with golden reflections, an intense and elegant bouquet, with notes of lily of the valley, tomato stem, grapefruit on a delicate woody background. Its entry to the palate is wide and flowing, the taste is long, supported by sweet, soft tannins, projected onto a finale of Mediterranian scrub, juniper and almond.
White wine from just the Vermentino variety, historically widespread on the Island of Elba. The Elba Vermentino DOC grapes ferment partly together with their skins, partly in French oak barriques and partly in steel.
We recommend pairing Elba Vermentino DOC with elaborate fish first courses, shellfish, with fish in tartare or baked, stewed, with gourmet second courses that look out to sea and with white meats.
