Wine Review: This yellow colored Vermentino opens with mild apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and displays a nice round mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a pleasant mild Anjou pear with a gentle hint of minerality and green apple. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This wine is a very food friendly wine. I would pair this wine with many foods. Pan seared scallops with garlic infused Brussels sprouts came to mind first. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Light golden color. Rich yet complex bouquet with scents of pine and sea grass. A perfect example of what Vermentino should be, brimming with fruits and floral notes adding minerals at the end. Medium-bodied with fresh peach and lime. The crisp acidity and long finish help show this wine’s true indigenous Tuscan class. Serve with poultry, fish and any type of appetizers.
