Professional Wine Reviews for Attilio Contini Pariglia Vermentino 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)

Winery Attilio Contini

Varietal: Vermentino

Vermentino grapes are thought to have originated in Spain, and this white wine varietal is still grown in small quantities on Spanish land. However, it quickly moved eastwards to Italy, and found a new home in the warm and sunny Mediterranean climate there, where it became highly popular due to its hardiness and resistance to rot. Today, it is most closely associated with the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, where it is widely grown and used for producing both fine white wines and table wines, prized for their freshness and acidity. Vermentino wines tend to be rather light in body and low in alcohol, which allows their crispness and acidic nature to come forward, and their flavors of lime and green apple to shine.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
