Cherchi TUVAOES Vermentino has been awarded with the prestigious designation of “Tre Bicchieri” by the famous Italian wine publication – GAMBERO ROSSO.
The origins of the Vermentino grape are uncertain. It is supposed that many centuries ago, it arrived in Sardinia from Spain, passing through Corsica; while another theory makes its origin go back to the Middle-East, passing by Greece and landing in the Mediterranean islands. The wines developed by this area often have different characteristics, due to the interaction among nature of the ground, climate, workmanships and ample aromatic characters.
The color is brilliant straw yellow rather intense with green tints. Showing deep intensity and persistence of soft floral scents that are enticingly pleasant. Tuvaoes has much strength and freshness, conferred by balanced acidity; it remains warm and soft, thanks to the solid structure. You can find the aromatic qualities to be quite persistent to the last sip. Tuvaoes will develop enhanced flavors with a few years of proper aging. Because of the strong structure of this wine it is an age-worthy white wine. This wine is ideal for any seafood dish as well as light meats.
