Tenute Soletta, Vermentino di Sardegna (Sardinia, Italy) “Sardo” 2019

($20):  The brother and sister-run Tenute Soletta is a new estate by Italian standards, having been created in 1996.  They use only their own grapes and focus on this Vermentino and a similarly delicious Cannonau.  This Vermentino spends about seven months on the lees, which likely accounts, at least in part, for its richness.  A crispness and saline-infused finish keep it in balance and you coming back for more.  An excellent match for anything from the sea.
