An incredibly fresh and fragrant award-winning Vermentino, with hints of lemon and minerals. Mundus Vini Gold

“Spèra” means “beam of light” in the dialect of Northern Sardinia, where this fabulous wine is from. As the name suggests, it is incredibly bright and fresh, with flavours of zingy lemon tempered by some minerality. It’s exactly what you would expect from Vermentino, Sardinia’s signature white grape. The grapes for this wine were picked by hand in a vineyard in the foothills of the island’s mountains. They were then de-stemmed and gently crushed, with the free-run juice fermented at just 12-13 °C  – a very low temperature – in stainless steel tanks. Dino Dini, the winemaker at Siddùra, uses this technique to preserve the fresh flavours of the grape. The wine was matured sur lie for a short time to develop a more complex texture.

Tasting notes: “A very attractive white with sliced lemons and pears and a hint of mineral, following through to a medium body, creamy texture and a fruity finish. Rich yet lively. Drink now.” – James Suckling 92/100.

Ageing potential: 3 years.
