Vermentino, Colla Micheri, Riviera Ligure di Ponente DOC
Winemaking Notes: Grapes are destemmed and macerate on the skins for 12 hours before pressing. Temperature-controlled fermentation with cultured yeast is followed by racking, storage in stainless steel with lees stirring, and no filtering (cross-flow and microfiltration) until the wine is bottled. A small amount of must from the same parcel is added prior to bottling as a liqueur to give 2 g/l of sugars.
Tasting Notes: This Vermentino is light-bodied with a silky mouth of crushed rock minerals, white herbs, white peach, citrus zest and a touch of oiled almond. Salinity on the palate leads to a long, snappy finish. This is a mouthwatering white wine.
