Wow. This is a throughly delectable white with sliced melon, apple and pear aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, rich and intense. This Vermintino from Tuscany rocks.

Vinification Notes

Once harvested, the grapes were swiftly transported to the cellar where they were gently pressed. The must obtained underwent a cold static decanting process for approximately 12 hours, imbuing them with refinement and elegance. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. The wine was aged on fine lees, followed by further ageing in the bottle.
