Vermentino Reserve

Native to the maritime growing regions of Liguria, Corsica and Sardinia, Vermentino has adapted splendidly to our warm climate in Piedmont Virginia. A spontaneously ingratiating white wine of self-proclaiming love for seafood and fish in all preparations, Vermentino’s dry but distinctly luscious minerality is complemented by generous palate weight and length, which we capture with fermentation and aging in stainless steel, under continuing lees contact of at least 7 or 8 months.

Total yields were adversely impacted by April frosts and heavy rains through June. Even so, we undertook customary manual crop reductions to produce the highest quality fruit. We were rewarded by weather of ideal fruit development in the final two months of the season. From early August and extending deep into September, the vineyard enjoyed lavish sunlight, heat, and dry conditions. The whites show beautiful aromatics, refreshing acidity, and fine structure for aging, especially in Vermentino.
