Vermentino is traditionally found in Liguria, Corsica, Southeastern France, and Sardinia. The minds behind Uvaggio found the perfect California expression of these places in Lodi. This 2018 Vermentino comes from Uvaggio's favorite site, Bella Vigna Vineyard. The silty alluvial soil allows the grapes to achieve very concentrated flavors. The wine is racked, lightly fined, then racked again and filtered prior to bottling, following a slow, cool fermentation using a fruit-enhancing yeast.

The result of Uvaggio's work is a versatile and food-friendly wine. This Vermentino has floral aromas of chamomile and honeysuckle. Flavors of citrus, lime, cantaloupe, apple, peach, and kiwi are met with herbal and mineral notes. The finish is bright and dry with some salinity and minerality that's sure to please lovers of both aromatic and crisp, dry white wine. Pair with fritto misto, marinated courgettes, a pesto pasta, and even light meat dishes.
