Poggiotondo Vermentino 2015

Tuscany, ItalyPoggiotondo is Alberto Antonini's home base, and the vineyards here were first planted by his father. Marine origin soils bear this vermentino, a grape rarely associated with this area. That said, the grape (rolle in French), loves the Mediterranean climate and the sunshine, and works well in these rolling hills. Whole cluster juice is kept on skins for several days before heading to concrete tanks for fermentation. White honey, lemon, white peach, big spice and concrete grip around the sides bracket this medium-bodied, gentle white, one cushioned with a slick of lees.Tasted: 27 March 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 29.00 private wine shops Producer: PoggiotondoDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
