Description

Pale lemon-gold. Classic waxed-lemon rind and lemon thyme emerges on swirling. Lots of dried, resinous herbs build. Brisk acidity gives life to the rich lemon and stony palate. A little bitter and not so long, but characterful. Warming finish. Tim Jackson MW "This is showing the features I associate with fashionable Vermentino, of a ripe lemon character that for me is reminiscent of the zest of a waxed lemon, alongside a clear herbal note – sometimes like lemon thyme, sometimes bay leaf. But this expression, from the variety’s heartland Gallura, is also showing an attractive balance between weight and ripeness, and its lift of acidity. This mix of distinctiveness, intensity and refreshment is what makes Vermentino (or Rolle, in southern France) such an exciting variety, whether in Gallura – Sardinia’s DOCG for the grape – or in places such as Bolgheri that are also producing very interesting examples. Either way, Soliànu certainly merits its DOCG Superiore status. 16/20."
