Vermentino has a cultured, dual-national identity. This white wine grape is found in a few regions of the western Mediterranean namely: southern France with her island of Corsica, northwestern Italy with her island of Sardinia. This grape variety is known as “Vermentino” in Italy, and “Rolle” in France, yet, the names of the wines produced in both countries can vary, extensively. The most commonly known are: Pigato, Favorita, and Rolle. However, once the wine has been sampled from either nationality, its identity becomes obvious in its aroma and flavor notes. Like an old friend, the wine is recognizable, wherever it lives.

Most varieties of Vermentino/Rolle-based wines share a characteristic richness, with a medium body, and a crisp acidity. They have noticeable mineral flavors, with notes of green apple and lime. Their aromatics are often described as lemon peel, citrus leaves, and dry herbs, with scents of its saline minerality. These wines are pale straw in color, and have a relatively low alcohol content.

WineStyle recommends this crisp, affordable wine with grilled vegetables, fried marinated sardines, oysters on the half shell, and deep fried shellfish turnovers.

While Vermentino is cultivated in both Italy and France, it is thought by many, to be of Spanish origin. However this is disputed by the Italians. There is another theory that Vermentino came from Middle-Eastern sources, yet despite its origin, this is not a heavily contested point, as the wine is distinctive and recognizable (with minor flavor and aromatic differences) from every region.

The Vermentino grape vine is known for its adaptability and vigorous growth, it ripens towards the middle of harvest cycle and is drought resistant. Because of its remarkably distinctive flavor notes, it is rarely seen in wine blends, but stands well on its own. With its balance of sweetness, minerality, and acidity it will not be surprising to find Vermentino is also a delectable table grape.

Vermentino is DOCG rated, produced in northern Sardinia in the province of Olbia-Tempio where it is known as: DOCG Vermentino di Gallura and Vermentino di Gallura superiore. In this province, the grape is called often called arratelau and has been known here since the 14th century. Elsewhere in Sardinia it’s used to make numerous varieties, including sparkling and sweet wines.

Some small scale vineyards in the United States produce Vermentino based wines, but it, as yet, has not found the popularity that Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, & Pinot Grigio enjoy. Nevertheless, the fashionable sentimentalities which surround these varieties have played a large role in Australia, where it has gained a popular following. Australia now has numerous wineries offering this Vermentino wine in several flavorful varieties.
