Miradas 2017 Vermentino di Gallura DOCG "Murales"
Northern Sardinia is home to some of the best Vermentino, and Miradas is one of the great expressions of this grape. It has so much to offer: apple, pear, banana and pineapple, but also a slightly more persistent presence of dry fruit and nuts. The bottle ha a beautiful label, the wine a lively golden colour, and the scents of the nose are complex enough to want you enjoy each sip.
The grapes are handpicked when fully ripe, softly crushed and left to macerate on the skins for a couple of weeks at controlled temperature. Then it ages for at least 8 months in steel tanks before bottling. This process brings out all the fruitiness of this great grape. Beuatiful!
Good with fish soup and meatier fish, it complements shellfish wonderfully. We like it best on its own, as an aperitive or when relaxing in the evening with some mild cheese.
