Ripe peaches, apricots, honeysuckle and citrus blossom on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with an oily texture. Some pithy lemon notes on the fresh finish. Drink now.

Varietal: Vermentino

Vermentino grapes are widely grown in many parts of Europe and the New World, and are especially associated with the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, where they make up a majority of the white wine grapes cultivated. Vermentino is highly popular with vintners, as they are very easy to grow and require little specialist attention. Indeed, the vines are famously vigorous, and resistant to disease, meaning that high yields of reliable quality are commonplace in Vermentino vineyards. The wines themselves are usually a pale straw yellow in color, and relatively light in body and alcohol content. They normally hold bright, fresh flavors of green apple and lime, and are much loved for their freshness and zingy, acidic crispness. As such, they are commonly served alongside seafood, and are a highly pleasant wine to drink outside on a sunny day.

Region: Tuscany

Tuscany has been producing fine wines for almost three thousand years, and as such is widely recognized as being one of the key Old World wine regions which have shaped the way we understand and enjoy quality wines throughout history. Interestingly, the region is typified by a unique soil type which is not particularly good for growing grapevines, but in Tuscany, the emphasis has always been on quality over quantity, and low yields with high levels of flavor and intensity are preferred, and have become a feature of the region's wine industry. The main grape varietals grown in Tuscany are Sangiovese for the distinctive, flavorful and complex red wines, and Vernaccia for the exquisite dry white wines, although the last couple of decades have seen more varietals grown and an increasing trend towards 'Bordeaux style' wines.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
