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

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 »

  • Terenzuola Vermentino Colli di Luni 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Subtle on the nose with delicately layered mineral earth, dried citrus pith and dried floral aromas with even a hint of rose petal here. Round and yet acid driven in the mouth, this shows somewhat simple flavors of citrus tinged sweet peach with sweet almond framing notes. Theres a touch of dried floral character in the mouth but this remains fa... Read More

  • I'm sorry but I draw the line on California. Chardonnay at $50. Besides, ... ... weekend. A blend of Vermentino, Cortese & Arneis coming in at a crisp 12.2. Drinks like a Grüner and a no brainer at this price. Or this Grenache-Syrah blend from Jolie-Laide, a new local (Forestville) label to watch. Love the artwork and love how it  sports a low...
