CONTESSA VIOLANTE - CONTE DE QUIRRA
is a Vermentino di Sardegna DOC
that certainly encloses the characteristics of the typical denomination, but it is endowed with personal peculiarities that gives it a strong personal connotation too.
The motivations at the base are the proximity to the sea, but above all the tardive grape harvest, that, contrary to the classic Vermentino
is near the drying.
As a consequence the refinement will be longer to, from the average 3 months to 8-10 months.
The result is a strong yellow pale with green shades wine, with great acidity and freshness despite the tardive harvest, that encloses not only the typical aromas of a Vermentino Sardo
that is to say floral, citrusy and exotic, but also more complex shades as the licorice final and the balanced alcoholic presence (14% vol).
Food pairing: crustaceans, grilled fish, cheeses.
