These wines, in fact, are based on semi-aromatic Vermentino vine , arrived in Italy with the Aragonese.

In Sardinia , Vermentino finds its maximum expression as it prefers a windy, dry and quite warm and sunny climate, typical of Mediterranean coasts . Vermentino has also spread to other areas of Italy: Tuscany (Massa Carrara, the Apuan Alps, Livorno and the Island of Elba) e Liguria .
