Nose: The nose is inviting and complex, offering a delightful bouquet of aromas, with dominant notes of citrus, green apple, and white peach. As the aroma develops, it reveals subtle nuances of white flowers, almond, and a touch of Mediterranean herbs, adding depth and sophistication to the aromatic profile.
Palate: On the palate, the Piero Mancini Vermentino di Gallura presents a medium-bodied texture with crisp acidity. The dominant flavors of citrus, green apple, and stone fruits are beautifully complemented by the wine's delicate minerality and subtle notes of white blossoms and fresh herbs. Mid-palate, the flavors evolve to reveal hints of pineapple and a touch of salinity, creating a well-rounded and harmonious profile.
Finish: The finish is clean, refreshing, and persistent, with the lingering brightness of citrus and green apple fading gently, leaving behind a gratifying aftertaste of delicate minerality, floral notes, and a whisper of herbs.
The 2021 Piero Mancini Vermentino di Gallura is a versatile and enchanting wine that pairs well with a wide variety of appetizing dishes. Its bright flavors and refreshing character make it an ideal companion for delicate seafood delights such as grilled shrimp, seared scallops, or a light and zesty seafood pasta.
For a vegetarian option, consider pairing the wine with a fresh and vibrant salad featuring arugula, fennel, and citrus segments, or a flavorful vegetable and couscous dish with a lemony dressing. The Piero Mancini Vermentino di Gallura also pairs well with a cheese board featuring a mix of soft, creamy cheeses like Brie or Camembert, and more robust, tangy options like Pecorino or aged Gouda, which will accentuate the wine's fruit and floral notes while providing a delightful contrast to its crisp acidity and minerality.
