Professional Wine Reviews for Attilio Contini Vermentino Pariglia 2015

Rated 90 by Decanter
Bright straw. Delicately exotic, spicy nose with soft citrus fruits, apricot and hazelnut on the nose. Fairly large-scaled and round on the palate, with the fruity and spicy character following through on the long smooth finish. Always a deeper wine than the Tyrsos, due to older, lower-yielding vines grown on volcanic soil right below the Monte Arci. This also features a more terpenic note (hay, musk) as the Vermentino grapes are harvested later than those used to make the Vermentino Tyrsos. (Vinous)

Additional Information on Attilio Contini Vermentino Pariglia 2015

Winery: Attilio Contini

Varietal: Vermentino

For several hundred years now, the Vermentino grape varietal has flourished over several parts of Europe. Although widely thought to have originally come from Spain, the Vermentino grape is now most closely associated with the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, where they are widely grown and are considered an important varietal for the island's economy. Vermentino grapes are particularly popular with vintners due to the fact that they are very easy to cultivate, and are especially resistant to rot and mildew. The vines are vigorous, and produce high yields of a reliable quality. The wines which come from the Vermentino varietal are generally pale yellow in color, high in acidity and pleasantly crisp, with flavors of green apple, lime and other bright citrus fruits.

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.
