Vermentino NW

The Cers was blowing hard the day this 100% Vermentino was born. Its name reflects this, NW, like the prevailing wind direction. Vinified and matured in terracotta and sandstone jars and eggs after a short maceration to preserve all its freshness. A wine of tension and purity of fruit.
