The demand for Vermentino di Sardegna DOC is increasing at worldwide level, along with the quality. The basic grape is Vermentino (85-100%), with the permitted addition of other local white varieties from all over the island (0-15%).

The wine has a color ranging from a very light to a more intense straw-yellow color, with brilliant, bright green reflections. The scent is delicate, inviting and typical of the wine. The taste is dry, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Vermentino di Sardegna, either slightly sparkling or with boldly dotting the tongue, is an extremely pleasant wine.

The minimum alcohol content is 10.5%. In case of a semi-sweet type of wine, the alcohol content will be 9.5% + 1% residual sugar.

Finally, a sparkling Vermentino di Sardegna Spumante is also available, with 11% alcohol content and an intense, fine foam, with persistent bubbles. The taste is either dry or sweet, and in both cases it is a fresh wine, with a perfect bitter aftertaste.

This is the perfect wine for fish, in all editions. The sweet type is suitable as an aperitif.
