Vermentino

Vermentino is a white grape variety that originates from the Mediterranean region, specifically Italy and France. This grape variety is known for its versatility, as it can produce both still and sparkling wines. it is also a grape variety that has gained attention in recent years due to its ability to produce wines with a range of styles, from light and fresh to full-bodied and complex. 

One of the most notable characteristics of Vermentino is its aromatic profile. Vermentino grapes are known for producing wines with a fruity and floral aroma profile, often with notes of citrus, green apple, and white peach. These aromas are further enhanced by the grape’s high natural acidity, making Vermentino wines bright and refreshing. 

Vermentino grape is primarily grown in coastal areas, where the warm climate and sea breeze create ideal growing conditions for this grape variety. Some of the most prominent Vermentino-growing regions include Italy’s Sardinia and Tuscany, as well as France’s Languedoc-Roussillon and Corsica. 

One of the great attributes of this grape is its ability to pair with a variety of foods. Its high acidity and fresh aromas make it a natural match for seafood dishes, salads, and light pasta dishes. Additionally, Vermentino can even stand up to spicier cuisines, such as Thai or Indian.

Profile

Organoleptic characteristics are those properties that our senses – sight, smell and taste – can perceive.

This wine is defined as the Wine of the Tyrrhenian Sea, and has flavour as its main characteristic. It is not highly alcoholic, but is defined as an elegant wine, with a fresh, persistent, full-bodied taste, with balanced acidity and a dry, fruity flavour. It can be aged for 2 to 4 years, thus attenuating the sapidity. Finally, it is a wine that is always very pale in colour, which may take on golden or greenish hues, depending on where it is grown.

It has intense, floral and mineral aromas, a fresh, savoury taste and marked acidity, and is also perfect when drunk alone as an aperitif.

PAIRINGS

We have come to realise that Vermetino is a fresh wine, with a persistent and savoury flavour, balanced acidity, not high alcohol content, floral and fruity aromas of white and yellow fruit. For these reasons it is considered the perfect wine for hors d’oeuvres, first and second courses based on fish. We can therefore pair it with seafood salad served cold or warm, prawn cocktails, spaghetti with seafood, penne with salmon, fish soups, baked or boiled fish, and fried fish.

These are just a few examples of dishes that can be enjoyed with Tuscan Vermentino.

This wine is universally considered very versatile, so its pairings do not necessarily have to stop at fish, and it is easy to see it accompanying medium-aged cheeses, white meats and vegetable dishes well.

The culinary examples just given are typical of Italian tradition, but a wine of such great adaptability can also be a good companion for more elaborate recipes,
