Olianas Vermentino di Sardegna Sardinia

Olianas Vermentino di Sardegna Sardinia

€26.95
 
Made with 100% Vermentino Sardinia’s signature white grape. A different take and approach to Vermentino here. Firstly there are 2 harvests – the earlier harvest has more acidity and the latter has rounder flavors resulting in a very balanced wine, secondly, 30% of the wine is aged in large oak. Round and generous on the palate with stone fruit, pink grapefruit, and spicy notes (fennel and jasmine) with a long fresh finish.

Description

This range of wines has become a staff favorite and extremely popular on the lists of some of the best Italian restaurants here in Ireland. Based around 60km north of Cagliari the vineyards have been in Artemio Olianas’s family since 1919. Artemio joined forces with Stefano Casadei (see Castello del Trebbio and Tenuta Casadei) in 2000 and the modern incarnation of the winery was born. Today they farm 25hA of vines organically and with a process, they call bio-integrale which involves integrating with nature – so no mechanization in the vineyard (horses instead), plenty of farm animals on the land, and only natural herbicides and fertilizers. In the winery, Stefano who spent quite a bit of time in Georgia uses a lot of natural materials with partial or total fermentation in clay amphorae. All fermentations are spontaneous and there is little or no sulphur added at bottling. Made with 100% Vermentino Sardinia’s signature white grape. A different take and approach to Vermentino here. Firstly there are 2 harvests – the earlier harvest has more acidity and the latter has rounder flavours resulting in a very balanced wine, secondly, 30% of the wine is aged in large oak.
