2018 La TestaBarrel Aged Vermentino

New $42.00 750mL

Vermentino is how we Rolle at RHV and in 2018 the Big Verm Energy we typically see in the vineyard was massively elevated. Perfect grapes, juicy yields, happy ferments; everything lined up to experiment further. Our favorite Verms come from the limestone rich hills of Patramonio, the name La Testa is a nod to Corsica. 

The wine was picked and immediately pressed, racked into barrel where it underwent spontaneous native fermentation, and was then left to slowly age for 4 years with minimal added sulfur dioxide. The result is striking aromatic elegance. White rose petals and lemon blossoms lifted on a Corsican sea breeze into the Mediterranean. Long barrel aged Vermentino magic.
