Vermentino

Common synonyms: Rolle, Rollo, Pigato, Malvasoie de Corse, Favorita, Favoria, Malvasie, Formentino

Parentage of the grape: native of Liguria (though originally thought to come from Spain)
 
History of the grape: Little concrete history is known about Vermentino except that it has recently been identified as the same grape as Pigato from Liguria, which would put rumors of its Spanish migration to that place to rest. It was likely consumed as far back as the 13th century. Whatever the story, no doubt the grape likes the Mediterranean climate, and thrives in places like Corsica (where it is the signature varietal, called “Malvasoie de Corse”), Sardinia, coastal Tuscany, Southern France (where it is called “Rolle”) and Spain. It eventually made its way to the New World as these varietals have been known to do. In 2009, President Barack Obama presented a bottle of North Carolinan Vermentino to Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi during an official visit. His reaction is not Read more »

  • Ryme Cellars Vermentino 'His' las Brisas Vineyard Vermentino Carneros. California 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The color is very much on the peach side. The nose is over ripe orange/tangerine. The flavors also come out as ripe tangerine, ripe pineapple and orange soda. We only have one bottle so I'll look for others to add their impressions. Seems to be in line with my notes from the 2013 vintage. Read More

  • Abbotts & Delaunay Languedoc Reserve 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This Languedoc white leans on the aromatic varietal Vermentino for backbone and on the nose presents cola nut and a miscellany of garden flowers. On entry, there are tisane and black tea flavours associated with Roussanne and Marsanne along with greater viscosity and mouth-feel than Vermentino alone can provide. Quite thirst-quenching and soft... Read More
