Professional Wine Reviews for Attilio Contini Elibaria Vermentino 2014

Rated 91 by Decanter
Golden-tinged yellow. Flinty notes of white flowers and fresh herbs (helycrisum, Rosemary) complement ripe apricot aromas and flavors. Creamy yet lively, saline and mineral, and very fresh on the long finish. Stays on the skins a little bit longer (roughly six to eight hours) than the other Contini Vermentinos. An outstanding example of Vermentino from the Gallura zone, which are characterized by helycrisum, rosemary and flinty notes all much more marked than in Vermentino di Sardegna wines. (Vinous)

Winery Attilio Contini

Varietal: Vermentino

The Vermentino grape varietal is a white wine grape thought to have originated in Spain. However, today it is most closely associated with Italian wines, and it is grown in much of northern Italy and on the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, where it is a highly important varietal for the production of both fine wines and flavorful table wines. Vermentino is popular with vintners, as it is an easy grape to grow, vigorous and highly resistant to the diseases and mildews which cause so many problems when it comes to other varietals. It produces wine which is pale and light in body and alcohol content, but which is refreshingly crisp and acidic, holding flavors of lime and green apple. As such, it is popular with those looking for a light and invigorating wine, perfect for drinking with seafood.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
