Wanda's Weekend Wine: Vigne Surrau Sciala Vermentino di Gallura DOCG Superiore 2014
An elegant sip from Sardinia, Vigne Surrau Sciala Vermentino di Gallura DOCG Superiore 2014 ($25) is a vibrant and delicious expression of Vermentino. Produced from Vigne Surrau's best grapes in the valley of Surrau, this medium-bodied white wine is absolutely delicious. Creamy and luscious with balanced acidity, it has a subtle salinity and beautiful flavors of citrus & herbs. Rated 93 points by Wine Enthusiast, Vigne Surrau Sciala Vermentino is delightful as an apéritif but it has enough structure to pair with meals of fish and roast chicken.
An Italian island located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia's sea breezes and granite soils are ideal for viticulture and the island's winemaking history stretches back three-thousand years. Vigne Surrau describes their family-owned company as "a new venture with age-old roots." Visitors are welcome at Vigne Surrau for guided tours and tastings.
