'Karmis' Contini 2021

Contini's Karmis is a white wine born in the vineyards of the suggestive Sinis area in Sardinia, from Vernaccia and Vermentino grapes. Its intense yellow color recalls the light of summer days and in the glass it reveals hints of white flowers, peach and pineapple, with citrus tones of cedar. On the palate it is soft and drinkable, it shows its fresh and savory character and an aromatic persistence

Perfect for young and medium bodied white wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
