Vermentino white wine
is a great summer wine and is gaining more and more appreciation across the globe. Here is a brief look at Vermentino's flavor profile.
Wine made with vermentino grapes is typically dry with a medium to light body and medium to high acidity. It typically has little to no tannin and is found at 11.5-13.5% ABV. It is recommended to serve this wine cold, and is an excellent way to start or end a meal, as an apertif.
Fruity flavors such as apple, grapefruit, and lime are often found in this wine, bringing out floral notes without delivering an overwhelming sweetness. Notes of honey are also often enjoyed.
This wine pairs beautifully with light meals, such as a light pasta dish or risotto. It pairs particularly well with seafood, specifically roasted fish.
It is also recommended as a compliment to young cheeses, perhaps at the start of a meal.
