MORA & MEMO TINO VERMENTINO DI SARDEGNA
The beautiful estate of Mora & Memo sits high in the hills in the south east of Sardinia just a few kilometres from the sea. Focused on the indigenous varieties of Cannanou and Vermentino, the combination of old vineyards with minimal intervention and a delicate touch to the winemaking results in elegant, vibrant and mineral wines. Taking the reins from her father running this small scale winery is Elisabetta who focusses on producing wine representative of the island terroir, executed in a modern way.
The vineyards average 30 years of age with vines planted on a south, south east exposure on limestone and clay hillsides around 200 to 200m above sea level. There is a brief contact with the skins, after cleaning, the must obtained from crushing ferments in stainless steel tanks with the addition of selected yeast at a constant temperature of 15 ° C. After fermentation, the ageing on its lees follows for a few months then the wine is ready for the refinement in bottle. No oak treatment.
The result is a straw colour with green tints, brilliant. Intense and persistent with scents of flowers and plants, rosemary, thyme and sage. Flavour is predominant of vegetal notes, warm and full, balanced with a long persistence finish.
Try with seafood in general, fish and delicate meat served with light sauces, soups or pasta.

The 2016 Vermentino di Sardegna Tino is a fresh and mildly fragrant wine to pair with Caprese mozzarella and tomato salad topped with fresh basil leaves. The bouquet takes a little while to open and is a bit shy on your first swirl or two. Stone fruit and almond aromas transition slowly to crushed mineral and flint.

Together with a Cannonau Gino DiAcampo recommended a Vermentino wine from Sardinia. My local wine merchant KWM wines obtained this Vermentino from the same supplier as a Cannonau. This is an excellent wine and my first experience with a Vermentino grape from Sardinia. I will definitely re order this wine again. Highly Recommended.
