The Finer Details
What does our Somm say?
If you’re an average Australia drinker, you may not have heard of ‘Vermentino’ of Sardegna. Well, you may have just met your new favourite wine.
Vermentino D.O.C. di Sardegna is produced from the same name of grape, grown on the Italian island of Sardegna, since the 14th century. This wine is one of the most highly regarded Italian white wines, benefitting enormously from its sun-kissed, hilltop terroir and the added light reflection provided by surrounding oceans.
For being a fresh and floral white wine, this drop is super versatile with food.
We love to enjoy this wine with anything that you would match with it, in its own traditional surrounds – so all things seafood, fish dishes and summer salads. To be more specific, a kitschy 50’s prawn cocktail would be delightful with this drop, some lightly grilled calamari or a salmon steak with asparagus.
Alternatively, anything with garlicky, herby or citrusy sauces will do this wine justice and make your drinking even more enjoyable.

The Viticoltori della Romangia is a collective wine making society that was founded in 1996, rising from the Cantina Sociale di Sorso Sennori, founded in 1955. Their focus is to produce wines that show the remarkable history and taste of the regions’ typical grapes such as Cannonau and Vermentino.
With their location of the vineyards being on the medium hillsides between Sorso and Sennori that overlook the coastal region of the Gulf of Asinara, this unique territory and microclimate has aided this vineyard in producing highly awarded and regarded wines within Italy and internationally.
