"Bright straw-green. Strongly herbal and minty notes to the pomaceous orchard fruit on the nose. Then bright, dense and saline, displaying an impressive spectrum of unripe stone fruit to tropical fruit flavors, complicated by a note of anise. Finishes big, round and long. A very fleshy style of Vermentino (it spends roughly two months on the lees) that packs a lot of power. The wine’s name, “Tino,” is a diminutive of Vermentino, though it’s so big and round you couldn’t be blamed for thinking they should have called it “Tone,” as in “Vermentone.” The vines are planted on mainly schistous clay soils with a little limestone."
Suspended between the sky and the land of the south east of the island of Sardinia, the estate Mora & Memo is a beautiful vineyard of one hundred acres in the middle of the thirties, collecting minerals from its limestone clay and sandy soils. Blown by the constant winds that carry the fragrance of a thousand Mediterranean essences and the salt of the sea not far away. In a hilly area with an average height of 240 meters above sea level, which is about 30 km, the Mora&Memo estate is planted with the main varieties of Sardinia: Cannonau Vermentino, Monica, along with international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. The spectacular location on a hill and protected to the north by a small hillock give to the grapes the character and nature of Sardinia.
