IGT TOSCANA VERMENTINO
Straw yellow with greenish flashes. The nose opens on intense fruit notes that move towards hints of yellow-fleshed peach followed by citrus notes and whispers of apple. The follow-through carries typical nuances of Mediterranean scrub like mint and wild sage. The finale plays out on the distinctive mineral notes of a coastal Vermentino.
The palate is zesty, very minerally and with good freshness. A nicely persistent wine.
Serve with fish, shellfish and delicate white meat.
Vermentino 85%, Sauvignon Blanc 15%
