Poggio al Tufo Vermentino 2020 (91 JS)
“Aromas of sliced apple, lime and a tinge of almond skin. Medium-bodied with a very focused bead of lime driving through the palate. Same dry-almond character at the end, together with a hint of salt. Very vermentino. Lots of tension here.” – J.S.
Poggio al Tufo
This single-vineyard Vermentino exhibits all of the characteristics for which Tuscan Vermentino is renowned, in particular its mineral notes, a result of the volcanic soil on which the vineyards lie. This bright, crisp wine has both wonderful freshness as well as the balanced quality typical of the varietal.
Poggio al Tufo is located in Tuscany's coastal Maremma region near Pitigliano, an historical Etruscan city known for its volcanic soils rich in tufo, a specific type of volcanic rock. Poggio al Tufo encompasses 3 estates in different areas of the Maremma, each with its own unique microclimate, but all sharing the influence of volcanic soil and Mediterranean breezes.
