Expert Reviews

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013)89 pts

Poggiotondo's 2013 Vermentino, from vineyards in Capalbio, is laced with almonds, dried pears and spices. This beautifully textured, expressive Vermentino is an excellent choice for drinking over the next year or two.-- Antonio Galloni

Miscellaneous (2010)88 stars

Nicks.com.au - "A blend of Vermentino, Ansonica and Malvasia. Deep straw colour with pale straw hue. The nose displays some light aromas of pear, apple and citrus. The palate possesses good textural qualities with flavours of pear and apple followed by spice and some nutty characters that are beginning to emerge on the back palate. Dry finish with aftertaste of pear, spice and dried nuts."

Vinification Notes

A two day cold soak pre-fermentation at 8°C was followed by fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 15°C for 20 days. No malolactic fermentation took place. The wine remained on the fine lees for a total of 60 days and was held in temperature controlled tank until bottling under Stelvin closure.
