About Vermentino Nero:According to some scholars, it is a mutation of the white Vermentino Bianco as it shares characteristics of the grape variety.
After being almost extinct after the Second World War, in the late ‘80s it was rediscovered thanks to the foresight of some producers that have resumed cultivating, proposing it in blends but also its versions in purity. The berry is black medium-large or large, spheroidal, or ellipsoidal short with medium waxy, greenish-yellow skin, that becomes golden yellow or amber when well exposed to the sun. The bunch is medium, cylindrical or pyramid with one or two wings (sometimes long pedunculate wing), usually loose or medium compact. The black grape Vermentino Nero has high vigor, medium-late maturing and high productivity, The Vermentino Nero grape gives a wine of ruby red color, fragrant and fruity on the nose, with medium structure and good persistence.
Vinification: Preferred cold maceration 24-36 hours, soft pressing of the grapes, alcoholic fermentation conducted at controlled temperature and subsequent maturation on its own scum for a few months.
Loaded straw yellow with bright golden reflections. On the nose it turns out full-bodied and of great character, with the hints of mature exotic fruit, yellow peach and disturbing notes of sweet spices. On the palate it reveals a velvety body, warm, enveloping and balanced. Extremely versatile: perfect companion of lean appetizers and delicate first courses, fish, has a structure that allows it to accompany without disfigure dishes such as a baked sea bream or a roast beef.
