Vermentino is a wine that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It hails from Italy's Liguria region as well as the Mediterranean Islands of Sardinia and Corsica. Vermentinos are light to medium bodied wines, with flavor profiles similar to Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Grigios or Rieslings; they range from fresh and light-bodied white wines to rich textural ones depending on their style! On your palate you may taste notes like lime salad dressing (yum!), almond biscotti cookies, green apples cut into slices for fruit trays - it can be sweet but also refreshingly tart at times if not too overripe! Similar to Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio or Riesling, Vermentino is perfect for summer.
