Tell me about this wine….

This is a fine wine if there ever was one, a wine that is a real gift and a treat for a loved one. A labour of love, a family’s pride and an example of legacy, heritage and history. Vernaccia di Oristano has been made by the Silvio Carta family for generations, and only every few years does a vintage of Vernaccia di Oristano come around.  Vernaccia is a seductive and bewitching  libation. The origins and meaning of it’s name embody it’s nature, an exotic mixture of Vernum –  Latin translation for spring and therefore rebirth, and Vernacula, meaning ‘of the place’.  On the nose you’ll discover chestnut honey and amaretto, butter and coffee. On the pallet, the  Vernaccia is moderately sweet and fresh, almost a liqueur. It ends with a lingering bitter almond note but its the colour that really steals the show, it’s gold.

Serve With…

Not strictly a dessert wine but we have found that it’s served best with dessert. Simply because the sweet notes on the nose compliment the final course best but the delicate salination on the pallet offer an excellent contrast.
