The Vermentino grape produces wines that are bright, clean, and crisp, with distinctive citrus character, refreshing acidity, and surprising richness. A lively and crisp white wine with tropical aromas of sweetened honeydew melon, white peach, and citrus complemented by a bright acidity and subtle minerality on the finish.
“Crisp apple, lemon blossom and lime peel aromas make for a zesty nose on this bottling of a promising grape for the region. There's pear-like ripeness to the palate, which shows a light textural edge.”
Matt Kettmann (WineEnthusiast)
“Vermentino is a dry white wine grown mainly in Sardinia and Tuscany that has medium plus acid, medium minus body, and displays green apple, citrus, and floral notes. This top expression from St. Avalo transports their drinkers to Italy with a California twist. The nose is floral, with white blossom, then leads to green apple, pear, sweet grapefruit, lemon, and even a hint of nectarine building toward tropical notes. The wine is bright and fresh. There is great salinity and mouthfeel and shows almond on the long finish. Floral and zesty. Delicious and refreshing. A pleasure to drink.”
