The Cavagino, is 100% Vermentino from three of the best vineyards located in the Cavagino area on the hills close to Sarzana, Liguria, with an altitude of about 150-200 meters above sea level. The soil is stony and rich in texture enhances the aromas of the wines.
This Vermentino White has a very intense straw-yellow colour. It has a complex nose with aromas ranging from balsamic to wood notes with hints of mature fruits, like the golden apples, William’s pear and papaya. These notes are accompanied with honey, Mediterranean scrub and spices undertone, which bring out the structure of the White. While the notes are soft, the full strong finish on the palate, providing a well-balanced finish.
