2020 Surrau Vermentino di Gallura 'Limizzani'

2020 Surrau Vermentino di Gallura 'Limizzani'
Sardinia, Italy

100% Vermentino. Vines aged 7-12 years. Fermented using selected yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. No ML. Aged 4 months in tank prior to bottling. 

Very pretty and perfumed, with yellow flowers giving way to ripe apples and sweet spice. This is silky in feel yet full of nervous energy, as a mix of saline minerals and acids creates inner tension. A mix of ginger and lime lingers long, making for a clean and precise finale.

The Demuro family are native Sardinians and have practiced viticulture for generations. Growing up, Tino Demuro worked in the family vineyards with his 11 siblings, primarily making wine for their own consumption. Twenty years later, while running his successful construction business, he began researching the symbiotic relationship between construction and nature. He believed a wine estate could be a place of work that was capable of creating a product of the earth through visible processes that ensure quality. In 2001 he decided to invest in the land’s potential with the purchase of vineyards in the municipality of Arzachena.

Vigne Surrau takes its name from the Surrau Valley, located between the communes of Arzachena and Palau in the heart of the Gallura appellation in northern Sardegna. Tucked among the rugged hills with an impressive view of the Limbara granite massif, the winery is short fifteen-minute drive to the Costa Smeralda and the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The location provides a perfect growing area for both white and red wines of extraordinary character and elegance.

91 points & Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast. "Fragrant and savory, this lovely white hits all the right buttons. It opens with heady aromas of elderflower, peach and Mediterranean scrub while the dry, refreshing palate doles out apricot, Meyer lemon, tang and saline. Crisp acidity gives it a bright, clean finish.”
