Ramoino 
'Montenero' Vermentino 
Riviera Ligure di Ponente DOC

Vermentino wears many costumes based upon where it likes to party. In Tuscany Vermentino is rich and boisterous, in Piedmont it assumes the name Favorita where it is lean and mean, in Corsica it masquerades as Rolle where it brings a waxy dimension and lastly in Sardinia where it attains the quality and level of Liguria.

This is a single block wine (Montenero) that sees a considerable amount of time on the gross lees leading to a rich and powerful creamy complexity. The name Montenero comes from the noticeable black gravel that dots the vineyard.

Pale straw. Fragrant hints of rosemary and thyme intertwine with exotic tropical tones. This wine has a personality all to its own. The palate is greeted with firm white peaches and a lithe texture. The salinity notes are apparent due to the proximity of the sea

RAMOINO

IMPERIA

Ramoino was established in 1964 in the village of Sarola. Sarola is a charming village in the hinterland of Imperia, only 3.5 miles from the sea and from the Via Aurelia, the main road that connects the tourist resorts along the Riviera. The soil is rugged and the elevation changes drastically depending on the part of the property. Ramoino is truly the definition of a family run estate. Learn More »
