Vermentino Noir

vermentino nero

I have recently discover an almost forgotten variety called Vermentino Nero, a true hidden  jewel from Tuscany and Liguria, in an area call Lunigiana. In the glass it is transparent, like Pinot Noir, the nose is deep very mineral, with a clear and distinctive graphite flavour,  fresh berries, violet and pansies. The palate is smooth, sapid, fresh with a good texture, the tannin is well integrated with all the main wine’s components. The Dna is not clear jet, but it is belived to be a mutation of the most popular Vermentino Bianco.
