Chimera - Vermentino di Sardegna

Chimera (meaning dream) is the dream of every winemaker to produce grapes of high quality, independent of climatic conditions, and to make a wine that expresses a grand personality

            The grapes are hand harvested in mid-September and placed in small crates in order to retain the juices and flavors of the fruit, then destemmed and cold macerated on the skins for 4 hours at 5°C after which they are pressed at a very soft pressure, resulting in a delicate, yet richer, aromatic wine of superior quality. Six months in stainless steel with frequent battonage (the process of stirring up the lees) and 3 months rest in the bottle results in a lovely wine with a pale straw color and aromas of citrus fruits and yellow berries.  The taste is beautifully well-balanced, full and fresh.  A fine wine for sipping or as an aperitif, also pairs well with grilled fish and all types of seafood, salads, omelettes and white meats.  Serve chilled.
