Vermentino is a white grape variety which is grown in several countries around the Mediterranean sea, from southern France to north-western Italy and the neighbouring islands of Corsica and Sardegna.
Crisp, acidic, with a good sugar/acidity balance and with herbal hints lent by the Mediterranean scrub, Vermentino is among the most appreciated Italian native whites. Extremely durable and resistant to both heat and drought, it grows particularly well in Sardegna.
The Opale wine by Mesa originates from the south-western part of Sardegna, from vineyards planted in sandy soils rich in clay and gravel. Here, dry hot days and breezy nights allow the grapes to ripen beautifully and concentrate the sugars, giving structured and intense wines.
Deep straw yellow with greenish glares. Intense and complex, with citrus-leaf aromas, floral and herbal whiffs. Medium bodied, mineral, with refreshing acidity and a long, persistent finish.
Best served at 10-12° C.
