Vernaccia di Oristano Contini 2018

Contini's Vernaccia di Oristano is a Sardinian white wine born from an aging of at least 4 years in small oak and chestnut barrels, left partially full to favor the formation of the oxidative veil of flor yeasts on the surface. In the glass it shows a golden yellow with amber reflections and discloses an intense, broad and complex aromatic profile, with notes of dried fruit, honey and almond blossom. On the palate it is full-bodied, direct and savory and the alcohol content enhances its aroma
