By buying this product you can collect up to 2 point points
A Ligurian white wine perfect for accompanying fish dishes (hors d'oeuvres and pasta dishes dressed with seafood sauces) and traditional local recipes such as stuffed lettuces. The flavour is dry with a background of characteristic bitter notes; a refined white with wild and floral scents.
The Vermentino vine is widespread throughout Liguria, it is a historical grape of the area and it is precisely in the Gulf of Tigullio that it has found one of its preferred habitats.
This Vermentino comes from the pure vinification of grapes grown on the hills overlooking the sea in the Gulf of Sestri Levante, on the Riviera di Levante.
Serving suggestion: 10-12°C in tall-stemmed goblets.
Alcoholic strength: 13% vol.
Cantine Bregante's Vermentino Golfo del Tigullio - Portofino DOC 'Oro Cantine Segesta' is a Ligurian wine, one of the region's typical whites: the vermentino vine is widespread along the entire Ligurian coast, but characterised differently in the two rivieras, giving rise to wines that are similar but not the same.
This is a dry white wine made from a 100% indigenous vermentino grape cultivated in the soils of the hills of Sestri Levante, between the localities of Sant'Anna and San Bernardo, in the hinterland of the Gulf of Tigullio. Here, where you can see the sea from the vines, the happy microclimate of the Riviera has allowed the Vermentino to develop a peculiar refinement: the wine obtained, after a cryo-maceration process that safeguards the organoleptic qualities of the grapes, is an elegant white with hints of wild fennel and broom flowers, with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste. We recommend serving this Vermentino Golfo del Tigullio - Portofino DOC chilled, at a temperature between 10°C and 12°C, in a tall-stemmed glass.
This Ligurian Vermentino is the ideal white wine for accompanying local fish dishes, from fried anchovies and cappon magro to buridda and ravioli d'arzillo (i.e. pasta filled with seafood ingredients). It is also excellent with Ligurian starters, especially vegetable starters.
Cantine Bregante vinifies and bottles its wines in Sestri Levante, which are born on the hills of the valleys that rise from the sea of the Riviera to the hinterland: right on the beach of Sestri Levante was the first historic headquarters of the company, the place where Bartolomeo Bregante founded his wine trading business in 1876, sailing from the shore with his leudo to build a small fleet that sailed the Mediterranean; the winery became particularly well-known on the island of Elba, on Ischia and in Sicily. Beginning in the 1960s, the winery began to produce wines in purity from indigenous vines of the area: these would be the wines that would give rise years later to the future DOC Golfo del Tigullio - Portofino.
