Antonella Corda, Vermentino di Sardegna, 2021
Region: Sardinia, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
The nose is fragrant and intense, resembling a Mediterranean garden, with aromas of orange blossom, grapefruit, lemon, sage and capers. On the palate, a vibrant acidity marries notes of sea salt, complete with a long, complex finish.
The fruit for this wine comes from Antonio Argiolas (Antonella Corda's grandfather and Sardinian famed viticulturist) favourite vineyard: Mitza Manna. The seven hectare vineyard sits at 200 metres above sea level. The soil here is marly limestone and clay, which helps to maintain the freshness and delicate aromas of the Vermentino. Aged for six months on its lees in stainless steel vats, this is a fragrant and intense wine.
