Vermentino di Sardegna DOC
Sardegna

Vermentino is a Mediterranean white variety, probably from Spain, known in the south of France as Malvoisie Gros Grain. Vermentino spread along the coasts of the northern Tyrrhenian Sea and subsequently established itself in Sardinia, where it found an ideal terroir and pairs perfectly with the fish based cuisine of the island.
