Winemaker Notes

This wine has a delicate straw color. The fragrance is subtle, with a hint of wildflowers and herbs, particularly rosemary and thyme, mixed with fruitiness reminiscent of apricot and pineapple, with good intensity. The palate is fresh, persistent and pleasantly mellow.

This is a dry wine that goes especially well with seafood.

Wine & Spirits
Grapes for this wine macerate on the skins for up to 48 hours, gaining intense aromas of dried sage and rosemary that conjure images of western Liguria’s scrubby terrain. The citrus flavors get juicier as the wine sits in the glass, picking up notes of white peach and an intense salinity that lingers on the finish.

Azienda Agricola Laura Aschero Winery Image
A small family-run company that produces less than 6,000 cases of fine wine from Liguria annually, including Vermentino, Pigato and Rossese, the estate of Laura Aschero began its winemaking activities as a hobby in 1980, planting vines to the family-owned land that had formerly been used for other types of crops. Laura Aschero started the winery upon the advice of a friend who claimed that she had the perfect land for growing grapes. Since her passing in 2009, her son has continued her successful venture with great passion and dedication. The winery is based in Pontedassio, in the hills above Imperia, and its vines are situated at approximately 150 meters above sea level on year-round sun-kissed hills, enjoying the ideal temperature and terrain for cultivating vines and maturing grapes. The wine cellar, situated in an ancient palace under the Piazza del Paese, has been completely renovated and today has modern and efficient wine-producing facilities.

A fantastic, aromatic white grape whose best wines come from a northeastern corner of Sardinia in a region called Gallura. Vermentino di Gallura DOCG, despite its light body, can be decidedly complex. Vermentino also enjoys success in Tuscany and in lesser proportions, grows on the island of Corsica.

In the Glass

Common flavors associated with this wine include pear, white peach, grapefruit, lime zest, fresh almond and crushed rocks. It is dry but fruity with a bright finish. Sardinian producers like to pick early to retain lively acidity but a fuller style has also become popular.

Perfect Pairings

Vermentino does well paired with fresh and simple seafood dishes, pesto, grilled fennel and light appetizers.

Sommelier Secret

Vermentino is thought to be genetically identical to Ligurian’s Pigato grape and Piedmont's Favorita. It comprises a large proportion of the whites in southern France, namely Provence, where it is called Rolle. If you're a fan of Sauvignon blanc, Albariño or Grüner Veltliner, a Vermentino in any of its guises, would be a great pick for you.
