Vinifera for Oenofiles: Vermentino
AWGA
Vermentino is a late-ripening white grape variety, primarily found in Italian wine. It is widely planted in Sardinia, in Liguria primarily under the name Pigato, to some extent in Corsica, in Piedmont under the name Favorita, and in increasing amounts in Languedoc-Roussillon. The leaves are dark green and pentagonal. Among the most photogenic of vines, the Vermentino grapes are amber-yellow and hang in pyramidal bunches.

In this week's Vinifera for Oenofiles, you will gain insight on the Vermentino from Page Springs Cellars.
