2022 Vermentino Isola dei Nuraghi “Fria”

Deperu Holler
Discount Eligible $37.00
SOLD OUT

Grown on a rocky escarpment in northern Sardinia, this Vermentino is the epitome of a great Mediterranean white. There is fleshy, golden, sun-ripened fruit, an evocative note of wild herbs and flowers drifting through a summer breeze, and the finish is not just saline, but full-on salty, as if a Mediterranean storm surge somehow ended up in the tank. The vines are farmed organically, regularly licked by cleansing winds off the coast, and the wine is fermented spontaneously and bottled unfiltered. You won’t find a more authentic or refreshing expression of island Vermentino than this.

Vintage Chart

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
