Karmis is obtained from the Vernaccia (80%) and Vermentino (20%) grapes which are selected with great care from adult vines, cultivated like small trees, which produce a yield per hectare of between thirty and forty hundred kilos. The grapes are made into white wine through a process that involves light crushing and fermentation under controlled temperatures. The wine is a brilliant straw-yellow colour, sometimes quite heavily-laden. The aroma is delicate but long lasting, with a pleasant sensation of fruit. The wine tastes dry, mellow, full with a good correspondence between the taste and the smell.

The producer

The Contini company, founded in 1898 by Salvatore Contini, is one of the oldest and most prestigious wine-making companies in Sardinia. The fact that the company, which is still family-run, is relatively small means maximum care and attention can be given to the selection of grapevines and the grapes, as well as to the wine-making process and the ageing of the wine, all of which respect ancient local traditions.

Best with

This wine is at its best with seafood, but is not at odds with white meat, if it is lightly seasoned, and stuffed vegetables.

How to serve it

This wine should be served at 8 - 10 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.

Rich but still light. Wonderful. Review by Sandrapippa

Love at first sight. I craved it from the first glass. This wine is smooth and full of flavor. A terrific Vernaccia, perked up perfectly with a glorious Vermentino. Perfect to drink with anything, any time, winter or Summer. (Posted on 6/20/2018)
