Vigne Surrau Vermentino di Gallura DOCG
The taste is soft, long and persistent with vegatal hints and minteral notes.
- Sicily, Italy
Vigne Surrau expands in northwestern Gallura, a few kilometers from the sea, a unique terroir characterized by granite rocks smoothed and shaped by the wind and wate, with a dense and typical Mediterranean scrub. The innermost part of Gallura is instead characterized by forests of oak, cork and olive trees. The vineyards, with a south-east exposure enjoy the Mediterranean climate in well ventilated hilly areas. The wind, typical of Gallura, allows us to obtain healthy grapes and thanks to the proximity of the sea, brings sapidity, particularly appreciated feature in thier wines.
From a selection of the best grapes (100% Vermentino) of the most vocated vineyards of the Surrau valley, comes a wine with important structure and intense aromatic features. The Vermentino grapes are grown with espalier (Guyot) training system on soils derived from granite weathering at medium consistency, tending to sandy. After a brief contact of the skins with the must, alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature around 16-18°C, where it will evolve for a few months in contact with its fine lees (bâtonnage).
A straw yellow with greenish hues, an inense bouquet of exotic fruit and Mediterranen scrub.The taste is soft, long and persistent with vegatal hints and minteral notes.
