91 Points- James Suckling
"A dense and fruity white with a creamy texture, exotic fruit and a long and flavorful finish. Drink now."- James Suckling
From a Tre Bicchieri producer, this north-coastal Sardinia treat has our Tasting Panel gushing. Super delicious, it’s more than a lovely example of what a Vermentino di Gallura DOCG should be - “exotic fruit and a long and flavorful finish” (James Suckling, 91 points) - it is one of the most universally appealing whites we have ever tasted.
Textbook perfect vintage. 2015 in Italy has been called “historic” by some with Sardinia reporting “excellent quality.” It was one of those harvests where pristine, healthy, ripe grapes set the stage for excellent wines and whites in particular are showcasing perfect balance. This Vermentino is a wonderful example of 2015’s fresh, rich and aromatic beauties.
Sardinia's only DOCG. Antonio Galloni once wrote that “Sardinia’s many exceptional wines clearly deserve more attention” and we couldn’t agree more. As the island’s only DOCG appellation, we believe the region’s most popular wine has earned its shoutout.
High vineyard standards. Sourced from Surrau’s own Chilvagghja Vineyards surrounding the Estate, high-class radiates from this white. The vineyards meet the region’s highest quality requirements.
Thoughtful aging. A rare quality in whites, this delight is bottled young, but designed for great longevity. You can expect complexity to develop with age up to an astounding seven years. And all without losing its alluring structure.
Pale straw with tints of lemon- green. Very intense with notes of citrus; delightful and floral. Crisp and dry with youthful vitality and freshness.
From the winery..
Surrau vineyards extend in the eastern part of Gallura, in sunny valleys, caressed by the clean Mistral wind blowing from the Strait of Bonifacio. Here the vine takes nourishment from the granite sands of the hills of Juannisolu and Capichera, the clays of the plains of Pastura and Cascioni and From the scents of the maquis of the Surrau valley.
Vigne Surrau’s winery overlooks a property of more than 50 hectares of land covered by vineyards. The project interprets the cellar as a workplace which transforms a product of the land through visible processes, which guarantee genuineness and quality. The architectural project is the result of a harmonious research between building and nature. The building in fact is realized by a sequence of transparent façades and local stone walls which meld with the land.
Lovely as an aperitif, ideal with seafood, salads, sandwiches and vegetable dishes.
