MONTEORO VERMENTINO DI GALLURA SUPERIORE DOCG
Sella & Mosca
A jewel in the Mediterranean, Sardinia is a rustic and enchantingly beautiful island with extreme geography and vinous diversity to tempt travelers and wine enthusiasts alike. Mr. Sella and Mr. Mosca fell in love with this land over a century ago and established Sella & Mosca, one of Italy's most renowned wine estates. As Sardinia's foremost wine producer, Sella & Mosca’s premium wines are made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. In addition to native varieties such as Vermentino, Torbato and Cannonau, the winery has successfully pioneered the introduction of international grape varieties, notably Cabernet Sauvignon.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES
The Gallura area and Vermentino, an inseparable pairing that reminds one of magical tales about the great whites. Sella & Mosca cultivates its grapes on the slopes of the south side of Mount Limbara, whose soils are characterized by broken-down granitic rubble and a hot climate, but with excellent temperature variations during the summer. Average age of vines is 18 years.
In the cellar, the grapes are soft-pressed, cold-macerated lightly and then left to ferment for an extended period in stainless steel at a controlled temperature. The wine is aged on the less, in stainless steel for four months.TASTING NOTES
