Vermentino is a bright and breezy Italian white wine with a sunny Mediterranean character accompanied by mouthwatering freshness and ripe stone fruit flavours. This version comes from Tuscany’s Bolgheri region along the coast where cooling winds from the sea and hot summer days help the grapes to achieve perfect ripeness while preserving ample acidity.
Half of the young wine is aged in stainless steel tanks while the other half matures in oak barrels for 8 months to add extra complexity and a creamy texture to the finished wine. On the nose there are delicate hints of aromatic herbs, zesty citrus and salty notes which remind of the nearby sea. The first sip reveals a racy acidity, medium body, and pure clean finish which makes this a great choice for an aperitif or to accompany fresh seafood, leafy salads, sushi or fish dishes.
The producer of this delicious white is Grattamacco, a tiny estate situated atop a hill looking out towards the sea. The 12 acre site was purchased in 1977 by Claudio Tipa who also owns ColleMassari in southern Tuscany. Grattamacco is blessed with an exceptional microclimate for grapegrowing and all farming on the estate is done organically and sustainably to produce the best quality fruit possible.
