TASTING NOTES – What’s in the glass?
Vermentino Più retains a straw yellow colour, with intense golden reflections. The traditional features of the Vermentino vine are all valorised by the refinement in Tonneaux. Above all, sapidity and minerality are the indisputable protagonists of the glass. Vermentino Più expresses aromatic notes of yellow fruits such as pear Williams, white melon and dates. There are also many citrus notes of pink grapefruit, which give excellent cleanness and complexity to the wine. In the mouth, it has a medium as well as pleasant texture. Vermentino Più shows a sour taste, with a clear chestnut note in the final. Of great persistence and drinkability, Vermentino Più is a new way of interpreting a grape that in recent years is becoming more and more popular.

“Su’Entu means The Wind: water that cleans the air brakes the clouds and restores the sky. The wind that makes the fragrances more powerful in wine. The same wind that across the territory and does not meet obstacles. The wind that is always welcome” – Su’Entu, Pilloni’s Family
WINEMAKING NOTES – How is it made?
The harvest begins in the second half of September and farmers pick grapes by hand and put them in wooden bins. Once in the cellar, the selection of the grapes takes place in two periods, first immediately after picking and then after destemming operations, as a result to guarantee that only completely ripe berries go to the fermentation tanks. The maceration lasts approximately 10 days while the fermentation takes place at the same time in stainless steel tanks. Then, the 70% of the wine goes directly into Tonneaux oak barrels, where, it matures for 6 months. The remaining part passes the same period maturing in stainless steel tanks. Consequently, Vermentino Più remains 2 months more in the bottle before the release.
HARVEST: from September 15th to 30th
