Collection: Vermentino

Vermentino is a white grape, also known as Rolle (in mainland France) and Malvoisie in Corsica . It migrated from the Iberian Peninsula in the late 1300s into Corsica, Sardinia, Liguria and Tuscany during the 15th century. Traditionally believed to be related to Malvasia, recent DNA studies have instead revealed traits in common with the Hungarian grape Furmint. This grape's profile is on the rise, becoming increasingly fashionable in Tuscany and other parts of central Italy. Often blended for its structure, on its own the grape displays aromatic ripe peach, citrus and honeyed notes and is generally quite full-bodied.
