This is a clean, crisp Vermentino with its typical citrusy lime flavors and touch of minerals. It is floral and fruity with lovely aromatic qualities made with 100% pure Vermentino from the Sardegna region of Italy.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Vermentino di Sardegna Albithia is a stunner, especially for the money. This vivid, chiseled Vermentino offers up scents of tangerine, flowers, mint and minerals. The Albithia is an intense wine and one of the more serious Vermentinos readers are likely to come across. Despite the richness, everything is in perfect balance here, including an eternal, sublime finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015. "
