Sella Mosca la Cala 2009
100% Vermentino. After harvest, selected grape bunches are exposed to the warm autumnal sunlight and undergo a brief, natural drying process. Following a gentle pressing, the juices are vinified under temperature-controlled conditions. Elegant and supple, this single-vineyard wine couples fullness of flavor with an underlying acidity.
External Reviews for Sella Mosca la Cala
Sella & Mosca, founded in 1899 by Piedmontese Emilio Sella and Edgardo Mosca, is Sardinia's top winery. This Vermentino is made at its huge estate on the north side of the island. Delicate and floral, this may be enjoyed as an apéritif or with light fare.
Offers appley aromas and flavors of lemony fruit and subtle almond. It is ample in the mouth with bright and balanced acidity, and the finish is lively and lingering.
Produced from the celebrated Vermentino grapes, which are harvested at the end of September, thereby adding a particular bouquet and taste to the wine.
A dry white wine with a pale, golden hue, a fresh and lively personality and a vibrantly fruity nose that leaps from the glass. Perfect as an aperitif, Vermentino is also an exciting accompaniment to hors d'oeuvers and fish dishes.
Medium-bodied, with lovely lemon and mineral character, good acidity and a fresh apricot finish. Subtle.
Here is a fresh and fragrant Vermentino with mineral and saline notes that form a pretty frame to citrus and exotic fruit. This is an easy-drinking wine with crisp acidity and a refreshing feel overall.
The 2007 Vermentino di Sardegna La Cala is classic Vermentino, with its soaring, perfumed aromatics, and crisp, clean fruit. A refreshing white, it is best enjoyed over the next year. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2009.
