About

The "black label" 2017 Colli di Luni Vermentino Etichetta Nera offers more sophistication and depth compared to its "gray label" cousin. This wine is chiseled and direct with bright and lively fruit. There is a touch of reduction at first, but this blows off quickly and the bouquet opens very nicely. Some 55,000 bottles were made.

Product Description:

"The Vermentino Etichetta Nera (Black Label) is the winery’s flagship wine and the recepient of many accollades including the coveted 3 Bicchieri Award by Gambero Rosso for 9 years in a row.

This is a selection from older vines (35 years on average) on hillside. The traditional characteristics of vermentino are enhanced here by the cold maceration on the skins which translates into richer and more complex sensations on the nose and in the mouth. All stainless steel. 3 months on lees.

Aromas range from spring flowers to acacia blossom honey and golden apple. Crisp with a touch of saltyness on the finish. Due to its complexity this vermetino is best enjoyed with food such as all types of seafood dishes but also poultry and white meat courses." - Importer
