If you want a truly first class, crisp, characterful white that stands out from the crowd, choose Vermentino. Top spot for it is beautiful Sardinia ' home to 'a wealth of immensely characterful local grapes capable of creating wines of real interest and originality' ' but the real star is Vermentino. It's grown elsewhere in Italy, but Sardinia's Vermentino has 'a weight and breadth not found elsewhere' (Oz Clarke). Bingias comes from a modern cellar in the Trexenta region of the island, founded in 1956 by a group of local grape growers who shared the dream of creating their own wines. Clean, fresh and peachy with no hint of oak, and with lots of honeyed intensity, this delightful white is a great match for white meats, salads and fish.
