Natalie's Score: 89/100

A vibrant northern Italian white wine produced from 100% Vermentino grapes. Fragrant with exotic florals and spices, this is a medium-bodied zesty white with bright citrus, fresh pear and lime leaf flavours and a briny mineral finish on the palate. So good, fresh and zesty. Pair with grilled fish dishes. Vermentino thrives under the Mistral Wind and its moderating influence and does well in Sardinia.

Vermentino di Sardegna food pairings: steamed shellfish with fresh lemon juice, poached white fish in white wine sauce, raw oysters with fresh lemon juice.

Greg rated this wine as 84/100
From Sella & Mosca, La Cala 2018 Vermentino is a vibrant northern Italian white wine with aromas of lime, white peach and Asian white pear. Dry, medium-bodied, fresh and crisp on the palate, with pink grapefruit, white-fleshed stone-fruit Asian pear, soft orange and lime zest flavours finishing with a lick of briny minerality. Enjoy now. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
