Poggio al Tesoro Solosole 2018
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
|Brand||Poggio al Tesoro|
This is absolutely one of my favorite Vermentino wines from the Tuscan Coast. It is made by Marilisa Allegrini and her consulting enologist Luca D'Attoma. You get so much freshness and varietal purity in the 2018 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole, with lemongrass, grapefruit and green tropical fruit like papaya and mango. The aromas are expertly delineated and crystalline. Some 88,000 bottles were made, and the value is unbeatable.
The 2018 Vermentino Solosole is bright, floral and nuanced, with plenty of jasmine, lemon confit and green apple character. Hints of tropical fruit and peach add an exotic note that is quite appealing. Drink this crisp, dry white over the next handful of years.
